No resistance at the primer means you have a vacuum leak before the primer and between the tank and the primer. The system up to the primer has to be vacuum-tight. After primer, the fuel is under pressure and would show as a leak. You can test by making a test line from primer inlet into a fuel container.

If it is plugged or sucking air.
