Question about Plumbing
If this is a water pump it sounds like there is air in the line. If this is a domestic water pump there might be a broken suction line or the fittings might be sucking air, This is only one problem. It might also be a bad pump but not being there it is hard for me to say exactly what it is. If you could borrow another pump and hook that up and try it it would be a good test to see if it is fact a broken suction line or a fitting or just the pump. If you are usig a plastic suction line it helps if you heat it when you go to tighten up the hose clamps that clamp the line to the inlet of the pump. Less chance of air because of a poorly tightened fitting. From experience i know priming a pump can be frustrating at times but it takes patience and a bit of work to find out why it won't pump.
