Replacement pumps for this model are available on eBay or Amazon for $75 (delivered).

If engine runs well and unit otherwise in good condition. Replace the pump... repairing pump itself will likely cost x2.

Drain carburetor bowl and try again. The engine will not run if the bowl is full of water. If it works try and figure out where the water came from (check fuel containers).

Check the anti-afterfire solenoid is functioning. This is the solenoid at the bottom (or side) of the fuel bowl.

It is safe to use starting fluid sparingly. A simple short <1 second burst into the carburetor throat is all that is needed. Where people get into trouble is they spray a few seconds and saturate intake with fluid and it pools inside a cylinder.

It sounds like the bulb is not sealed properly. That may also explain why it shut off after 20 secs. (sucking air and not getting enough gas). Fuel line or carb may be cracked or clogged. Or you may have accidentally reversed the fuel lines. Since it worked fine before you removed it, the problem most likely lies with the bulb, its gasket, its fuel line connections or the one-way valve beneath the bulb.
Good luck
