Disconnect your fuel lines at the engine, and use air pressure to blow back(back-flush)through your fuel system until you hear bubbling sounds from the fuel tank. While doing this, examine the ENTIRE fuel system for leaks, any leaks behind the fuel-pump are where you are sucking air into the system, and are your problem. If the system is not compromised, you should have cleared the screens and such with the compressed air. Drain each section of fuel line between the filters and discard that fuel. Reconnect and bleed the system and that should do it.
