It sounds like the transfer pump quit. (I'm a diesel/hvy. equip. mech.)

a quick search on your motor says you have an electric fuel pump (if it's after 1986) feeding the injection pump. check that 1st. A small universal fit "Bendix tic tic type" electric fuel pump would replace it if you can't get a direct replacement pump.

If you don't have an elec. pump feeding it then it's probably a diaphragm type pump (like an older car fuel pump) and can be rebuilt by you if you have basic mech. skills. simply a few screws/bolts and replace a few diaphragms.

cleanliness is important when working around open fuel lines.

p.s. you only get tiny drops of fuel out of the cracked lines, it doesn't gush out.
