Never saw a "Kingston" in a fuel line. Sorry....I know it was probably the auto correct.

Ok now to get serious.
If there are no kinks or leaks in the fuel line from the tank to the pump, my guess would be that the fuel "sock" on the end of the fuel line in the tank has collapsed and is cutting off the fuel flow.
That or the tank is really dirty and the sock is plugged up with debris.

^^^^^ very likely. Just unplug the hose connecting to the tank sending unit and crank it and see if it squirts out any fuel. If not pull the sending unit

Something isn't making sense about this. Maybe I'm just tired. Doesn't a mechanical fuel pump PULL fuel from the tank and into the engine. So if you disconnect the line anywhere before the pump, nothing will come out of the tank when you crank anyway??

True but if you have enough gas in the tank it should force it out. I'm so partial to my electric pump mounted on the tank on my 65s

Had the same prob. Dropped the tank and pulled the sending unit. Was covered in rust and crud. The gas these days do a job on steel. Replaced everything. Including both filters. Starts and runs great now.
