Need help with fuel line issues (34' A)

Just bought it, older, cannot get gas to fuel pump. Dropped tank, replaced all three lines. Feed, return and new generator line. Bolted tank back up and still just get air (no fuel) when sucking on feed hose. What's up with this? any suggestions? I am going to drop tank again and remove sending unit I suppose this time but don't want to do this a third time.
Unit did sit for a couple of years but didn't seem to have any fuel in tank.

Is the tank empty? You say it doesn't seem to have any fuel in tank, if that's correct you won't get anything but air.

Sorry, forgot to clarify---put in approx 20 gallons at first, then drained it empty again, then put 10 more back in to do the most recent test. So, bottom line is there is approx 10-12 gallons in there right now. Appreciate your help--Joe
