when i rebuilt my v8 with mechanical pump i had the same problem, when i used a can of cold start(the one u spray directly in the carb)it pumped up a little fuel.
so i filled the carburator with fuel by my self and now it runs perfect.
maybe just cranking the engine isnt enough for the fuelpump to suck up fuel.
