1996 Bearcat

I have a 1996 Bearcat and every year it is super hard to start. If I watch the fuel lines there is no fuel going to the fuel pump when being pulled. We pressurized the tank and pushed on the throttle while doing so and still nothing..... Is there a trick to getting fuel to the fuel pump and then to the carbs?? Maybe putting a pump or something like what you would use for a boat??

Ant info would be great!!!

Thanks

First start of the season can be a pain.
Priming the cylinders can help as it will then suction the fuel up to the carbs. You might have to repeat several times.
Another method is to use a syringe to fill the carb bowls so it will run a bit longer.
