You can attach a siphon to the fuel line from the pump back to the tank and use it to detect any leaks in the line. You can also check the carb the same way, running it on fuel from siphon. If both check out OK, you can use an electric pump or replace the mechanical pump. Either should work providing that the "sock" inside the tank is not obstructed.
