The injector pump may be knackered but you need to remove the fuel pipe from the filter to the pump at the pump end while you operate the bulb on top of the filter.That will get fuel to the pump;then refit pipe and crank to see if fuel gets to the injectors.

The pump you mention only bleeds the low pressure side of the fuel system, It won't pump fuel up to the injectors.
When you've bled the fuel system using the primer pump, loosen off the injector pipes at the injector end and get an assistant to spin the engine over on the starter, as fuel leaks from the loose joints, and with the engine still turning, tighten them up.
