Have you tried taking the hose off of the seacock? Close the seacock, take off the hose, open the seacock for a second or two. If water doesn't shoot several inches out of the tail piece of the seacock, then you have a clog or a bad valve. If that's the case, get that fixed before you bother messing with the toilet/pump itself. If it's a clogged thru-hull, you should be able to open the valve and clear the obstruction with a stiff wire, or a screwdriver if everything is "in-line". You'll let a little water into the boat, but no more than a couple of gallons. It's unlikely to be clogged anywhere else on the intake side, unless you have a kinked hose for some reason.
