Yes, I believe it should hum like a small motor. I also believe your fuel filter may be clogged. You might want to see if you can blow through both the filter and that hose.
I would imagine that the fuel pump most likely has bushings or bearings on each end of the armature. If they are worn, the armature will drag and cause it not to spin. Then again, if it has brushes in it if they are worn out then the voltage is not passing all the way through it. Is the any way you can get that fuel pump apart and also get it back together?
