Default 6V fuel pump

They are a very high flow low pressure pump; there is no need for an additional pump. I don't remember the spec as to how many gallons they pump per hour but it is crazy compared to traditional 4-stroke engines. That is why condensation can be a problem due to fuel heating.

So you are only getting fuel to one head or no fuel at either one?
Here is a picture of the little pump; sorry its a little dark. The copper line is the suction. Have you checked your Raycor filter? Any little air leak will not let it prime and pull fuel. There also can be a check valve in the system to help hold the fuel in place. I had a ton of fuel problems with my bus when I bought it; so I had to learn all about it the hard way.

I have the service manual on cd for the 92 series engines. The fuel section is 158 MB and is a .pdf format. It shows diagrams, exploded views, pump service instructions, etc; I can try to send it to you somehow; little big for email; if you wish.
