Can you put a hose down the filler tube? If not you can disconnect the fuel line at the filter.

I suppose you could unhook the fuel filter, then hit the pump primer with 12 volts and let er flow. Make sure you got a big bucket.

It'* been awhile since I changed the filter but I think the fuel will siphon through the pump. Did the gas tank spring a leak?
