Sorry but I am also not very familiar with this engine type. But I like to suggest you check the screen in the small filter under the priming pump, also in the priming pump there is a check valve and it needs the round plunjer to be screwed to full close to work. Also you can try to keep pumping the pump while running the engine, if that helps you have a good chance the lift pump is bad. If you don't feel pumping action (backpressure) there probably is a problem before the pump (clogged screen in fuel tank?).
