And Then There Was None

Hey gang,
Here’s the story. Pulling out last year I lost power on the way to the ramp. Had to throttle way up to keep going and when I idled back it died. Acted like a clogged fuel filter so this year I put one one. Nothing. Cranked and no attempt to start but I do have fire.
Pulled the pickup tube and all clear. The filter is right next to the tank and dry as a bone. I blew on the hose through the filter and could hear gurgling in the pump sediment bowl. So assume the line is clear.
Pulled the sediment bowl and brim full.
I’m thinking a bad (mechanical) fuel pump. Motor (and I assume the pump) are 51 years old.
What do you all think?
Thanks in advance.
