Put some clear line on and cranked it 4 or 5 times. Barely any fuel in the line. I'm going to try to get it started with a 5 gallon jerry can.

The really weird thing is that when I try to start it there is more air than fuel going through the return, but when it was running yesterday there was very little air in the return line.

this is really annoying.
try unplugging your advance on the IP..... and maybe upgrade to a electric lift pump.... princess sells them for like 70.00..... and redo all the lines in good rubber, double clamped.... i would look at dropping the tank too... maybe the sender lines are rotted and pulling air...
