Fuel pump priming

After letting my '48 sit for almost three years, I'm finally getting back to work on it. It was running with a newly rebuilt fuel pump when I parked it, and now I can't get fuel to the carb. I drained the old gas, put in five gallons of 90 ethanol free, and made sure fuel was getting to where the rubber line attaches to the metal line before the pump. Turning the engine over, and getting it to fire briefly by pouring a little gas in the carb, I can't get the pump to draw fuel. Do I need prime the pump?
