Actually there are at least a couple of 2 stroke outboard manufacturers (Evinrude and Tohatsu) that use fuel injection systems or, even better, directly injected fuel systems.

Nevertheless I don't know of any 6 hp outboard to have a fuel injection system so I wouldn't worry much about it...

About the hand pump priming difficulties:

-Have you assembled it with the right orientation? (arrow pointing from tank to motor)

-Do you have your fuel tank breather open?

-Are there any leaks along the system (maybe a poorly tightened hose clamp somewhere)

-Are your connectors fully inserted both onto the engine and tank?
