The filter is going to have an in and an out fitting on each side. Make sure you are connected to the appropriate one. If it runs OK without the bulb, those connections are OK. Make sure the bulb isn't reversed. If you are sure the hoses are correctly connected, squeeze the bulb with your finger over the suction side. You should feel it sucking on your finger. You should also feel air blowing out the other side. If you don't, you could have a bad bulb.

You have a in and out fitting on the same side us them. Put brass plugs in the other side.You should be good to go.
Best to have a spare filter in your boat at all times. When putting on a new filter you will have to mash the bulb for a while to get it to pick up gas.

Is the squeeze bulb between the tank and filter? It needs to push fuel through the filter, not pull it through.

I have always ran the bulb between water filter and motor. You may have a bad bulb.
