No other pumps, just the one on the timing cover, there should be a filter, if you've changed that disconnect the fuel line at the pump from the tank and place a finger on the fuel pump where the hose was and have the engine cranked over to see if the pump is sucking, the diaphragm inside the pump could be damaged and the pump needs to be replaced.

Wheres the fuel pump located in my 1982 460 ford holiday rambler motorhome????

One of them is on the front lower side of the engine block just aft of the timing chain cover. (this is the mechanecal pump). The other pump is electric and is located just in front of the gas tank and is near a fuel filter. There is probably a fuel pressure regulator located just behind the passenger side front wheel as well.

inside the gas tank there is a little round screen on the senion unit which is also the pickup line and fuel guage. take it out and get a can of brake parts cleaner and flush out the screen and then the fuel should go through that is about the only thing i thnk would be left since you have changed the pump and filter.
