Crikey, sounds like the engine running!  Whatever, if it ain't pumping it
ain't no good.  Sure you have enough petrol in the tank?  Have you tried
sucking on the inlet pipe to see if you can pull any up (some clear pipe on
the mouth end might be best!)?  Could be blocked or perforated above fuel
level.  Have you tried blowing into the outlet pipe to check that is clear?
Assuming the float chambers aren't already full, that is, and if they are
simply run the engine till it conks out.  And, erm, are you sure you have the
pipes connected the right way round?  Sucking on what you think is the outlet
should reveal that, or maybe blowing and listening for bubbling in the tank.

What's up with the starter?  When you turn the key to crank that should
operate a relay by the fusebox with a click.  That should operate the solenoid
with a clunk, which will drown out the relay click.  And the solenoid should
cause the starter to grind, which will drown out it's clonk.  So just what
noises do you get and not get?
