I have an Albin diesel that takes quite a while for the fuel to get from the high pressure pump to the injectors after air has got to the system. When I see fuel coming out; is is only small drops that are spit out, not a lot of fuel. I doubt there is a problem with your pump.

Try starting at the filter, and bleeding the system to the h/p pump. Take the h/p fuel lines off the top? of the pump and see if you get fuel. If you do; put the lines back on and pump until you get fuel to the injectors. Mine takes about 30 seconds of hand cranking to fill up the lines. Be sure your fuel lever is at least 1/2 and the kill pull is off and hasn't slipped somehow.
