That must be an old motor - dont remember 318s being in boats, but it should be basically the same. No reason for having a bad pump, never really came across that issue. It should not take much to fill that carb. You may want to check out the carb and make sure its not filled up with gunk. Also, when the pump is put on, take the fuel line off by the carb and turn it over and see if gas will spray out (into a can). Make sure the pump is primed first. It is not uncommon for a pump to go out, but then again its not a very common thing either.
