Troubleshooting new inline fuel pump on carbeurated vehicle

I’m having trouble with a new fuel pump; everything is installed correctly and I can hear it making a bit of a noise when I turn the key; I can also hear fuel moving around in the tank. But it won’t start at all. The previous fuel pump died after a month of rough starts. I of course also replaced the filter. Wondering if I need to bleed air out of the line that goes to the motor?

Disconnect the fuel line between the pump and carb. crank engine over to see if fuel come’s if so pump is working if not bad pump or something stopping up between tank and pump. Just because it is don’t say it is good as it can be bad out of the box.
