Jeep keeps dying- fuel problem with video

I have a 77 cj5 with a 258 engine. I have been out the last 2 times and have been stranded both times. I'm not quite sure if it is my fuel pump or what is going on. I replaced my tank and sender a few months ago so that may have a hand in my issue. It will run fine then all of the sudden it dies. In my clear fuel filter it just doesn't look like it is pumping enough fuel. Possible fuel pump or pull the tank again and see if there is a kinked hose? I have had the Jeep for about 14 years and i have never changed the fuel pump.

I posted a link to a video i took of the fuel coming into the clear fuel filter

Does your oil smell like gas?
Fuel pump is my guess.

Looks like you are starving for fuel.
Did you replace the rubber fuel lines lately? Ethanol in today's gas really eats up old fuel lines from the inside out.

Fuel pump? Cheap and easy to change.

Leaks in any fuel lines? Connections where they clamp to the steel lines are a common area.You will suck air instead of fuel.

Rusted pin holes in the steel lines?

Long enough pickup tube on the new sending unit?

Plugged vent tubes?? Remove the gas cap to see if you hear it suck in air.
