glass fuel filter half full of half empty.

My 65 ElCamino normally starts fast, even after sitting for weeks. Recently
it needed to be turned over for 20 seconds or so before it would start. I payed closer attention and observed that the clear fuel filter bowl would be empty after it sat long enough for the problem to occur. I concluded that the fuel pump must have ben leaking back and draining the clear filter bowl.
I replaced the pump and started the car. I watched as it idles and noticed that the filter was only half full or empty. Seems that the clear filter bowl would be full with the engine only idling. I am wrong?
