Mitsubishi diesel engine, if you make a test line and attach it to the fuel primer pump and drop the hose into a fuel container will it pick up fuel and let the engine start? This bypasses the tank and hoses up to the transfer pump. I'think that you have a leak in the suction side of the system, so the pump will not pickup fuel The suction side has to be vacuum tight, and not restricted.

I see the question is still open, did you try the test line?
