No fuel in filter once stopped and will not start

For the last two days after I stop the car and come back 10 min later she will not start. Lokking under the hood I notice the fuel filter is dry. Once I get fuel back up to the filter I have to wait a good hour before I can start her again due to flooding I assume.

Question, is this new fuel pump mechanical gone bad or could it be something else?

Hi Miller

I have a 1970 and if your filter and pump is like mine, maybe is the fuel pump, last time I had this problem was the carburetor, try to spray starting fluid in the morning and see if she can start.
