Yes it is probably the pump or a problem in one of the fuel lines but i would bet more on the fuel pump or suction line into the tank. If you can take the line off going to the tank put it in a jug of gas and see if the pump will pump it to the carb or the engine will run.

If you can feel air blowing, it could be that the suction tube in the tank has broken loose. I guess to check it you either have to drop the tank, or hook an electric pump to the gas line. If the electric pump will draw gas, then the tube is okay. It may be just as simple to try a different fuel pump. If that one won't pump, then you know the problem is in the tank, or in the gas line. Be sure the connections are good and tight before you try anything else. It may be sucking air because of a leak in your gas line, or fuel pump connections.

The diaphram can tear, but when this happens it typically leaks gas into the crankcase. Is there gas in your oil? If no, recommend you take the float bowl cover off and see what's going on when you start it. Please let me know if you have more questions.

I would lean towards the fuel pump, but... How dirty was the old filter??? if it was bad then the new one may have picked up whatever was left in the line. I guess I would go the easy route, replace the fuel filter, this time with the filter off crank the truck and catch the fuel in a mason jar til it is clean, you may need to drain the tank and try to clean it out if it is real dirty. Hope this helped Tim
