Fuel pump not pumping gas 2007 rancher 420

Like the title says, my old 2007 rancher 420 foot shift does not pump gas. It has not run properly for years and I quit messing with it several years ago. It sat for several years and the gas smelled like kerosene when I drained it and replaced it with e10 and added several ounces of seafoam. I added an inline fuel filter so I could see if there are particles, etc. Now, the pump seems to run for a few seconds when the switch is turned on and the injector clicks okay. Both make the same noise they always did. I took the fuel line off the top of the pump and it sputters a minute bit of gas when the key is turned on, but that is it, just a bubble or two.

Is there anything I need to check before I buy a new OEM pump? The pump does seem to vibrate (run?) when touching it and makes a small clicking sound at the injector for several seconds once the key is turned on, then both go silent.

I bought the thing new in 2008 and like I said, it sat with old e10 in it for years. I may have 10 or 15 hours on it since new. Just never really used it.

Thanks for any help before I start replacing stuff I hope I don't need to. djc

You could try replacing the fuel filter. Personally I'd replace the pump and filter as one.
