Sounds like the pump if the fuel filter is empty. You can get the mechanical replacements online. No priming is necessary if the pump is good.
An electric pump does require a bit more work- you have to mount it and wire it in. One caveat is HOW you wire it. In the event of an accident, an electric pump will keep on running, possibly causing a safety issue. You can buy protection devices to shut off the pump. Or, one trick, is to use a relay and wire the relay to the oil pressure sensor, such that when oil pressure drops, the pump stops. In order to start the car (no oil pressure), you have a little over ride push button switch to power the fuel pump. It may sound complicated, but it's pretty easy.
