Next I'd check the anti-siphon valves for crud or sticking.
The antiisiphon valves are check valves located on or very close to the fuel tank. There is a very light spring that pushes a ball toward the fuel tank side of the valve. The idea is that if a fuel line were to rupture in the bilge where fule lines usually are, the break could cause the entire tank of fuel to be siphoned into the bilge. The light spring prevents this from occuring. This ball is pulled away from its seat when the engine is running by the suction of the fuel pump. It be stuck in place limiting fuel flow. The valve could be stand alone, or it may be built into the hose connection your fuel line connects to.
Let us know if any of that helps.
