Taking the gas cap off wouldn't help the fuel pump. When you turn the key to run before running the starter, the fuel pum should run for a few seconds. This should di this every time you turned the key to run from off, even over and over. When you have the problem, turn the key off and back to the run position. You'll hear the pump run a few seconds.

You'll have to drop it all the way. You have to clean around the area to make sure dirt doesn't drop in the tank. At the shop, we've rased the bed and didn't drop the tank if they were full. If you have someone crank the engine while you bang the bottom of the tank with a pice of 2x4, sometimes it'll start running for a while to move it where you want to work on it, also to use some of the gas. Change the filter too.
