cw manual bilge pump, bike pump type

I have just bought an older boat with a bronze bike pump style manual bilge pump. It doesn't seem to draw much water. I opened the thing up and poured water into it to prime it, but , not much better results. The hose is not clogged cause the water just drained quickly into the bilge. Do i need to rebuild the thing, new gasket, or what?

Thanks for any help.
