not etting fuel to bowl, brand new motorcraft fuel pump

ok this is driving me nuts, i finally got my truck back to the house. trying to figure out this no fuel issue.....so i let a friend borrow my truck and he said it ran out of fuel and wouldnt restart. apparently he didnt check the fuel bowl at all and burned out the "on rail" fuel pump......so i bought another one. before i hooked it all up i stuck the sucking end of it into a cup of water and it spurted water everywhere, letting me know the pump itself is good. still no fuel to bowl. also i disconnected the front fuel line of the pump to see if i could get it to spew diesel, nothing. its definitely not getting fuel out of the tank. luckily i have a dump bed and getting to my gas tank is super easy. I took the lift pump from out of the tank and cleaned it very well, there seems to be no restrictions whatsoever with it. still no fuel to bowl.........so here i am folks, dead batteries now, good fuel pump that wont suck fuel, is my lift pump bad?? i put a test light to it and not getting any voltage from either of the two wires. any help is appreciated.
thanks,
sean clark

Lift pump? There is no lift pump....id check for a crack in the pick up straw. Check the bottom of the strainer on the pic up...

You're looking at the fuel level sender connection. The pick up straw just draws the fuel out of the tank when the pump turns on. Maybe the lines and pickup could have a clog in it?
