Is it not pumping fuel into the bowl?

No. It was leaking fuel so I changed the fuel lines and the fuel heater element. Now the bowl won't fill up. Could it have been the fuel pump the whole time?

Well, if its not filling up the bowl you may have a pump problem. Where was it leaking fuel from? The gasket around the top of the fuel filter or around fittings and whatnot?

I would assume it because the bottom fuel like was cracked from pump to bowl...replaced...also replaced vacum sensor above the fuel line and sealed the threads. It did have fuel in the bowl when I changed the heater element. Now it won't fill back up.

Try putting some fuel in the bowl and starting it. See what happens. Pump may just need to be primed. Fill the bowl up, and use the ether if you want to get it running. Ive done it. Most people will say not too, but when your in a hurry or stranded, it works fast.
