Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

Make a test line, from the new separator inlet, back into the fuel tank filler opening and run with the tank and outlet line bypassed. I think you have a restriction or trash in the tank or outlet.

?? Has to be lack of fuel from the tank, and before the fuel transfer pump. You have blew out all the lines, and have no vacuum leaks ? think there is problem with the tank and outlet line. Will it run with direct line to the fuel transfer pump . into a separate fuel container?
