Manual water pump priming sucks so much ....

...that I have to lean over, turn my head upside down and suck on the pipe until I hear the gurgles getting closer. When I "feel" the gurgles I start pumping and water flows.

The boat has sat on the hard for over 3 years. Is it possible that some vital part has dried out? Is it worthwhile trying to diagnose and fix or should I simply replace it and go sailing? It is not a life or death matter but I do want it working eventually.

Thanks all.
