On vehicles with electric fuel pumps I think the power feed also goes through an oil pressure switch. If there is low oil pressure while the engine is running the fuel pump shuts off. During starting this switch is bypassed to allow the engine to start. I'm wondering if your generator might be set up the same way and something is wrong with the start bypass switch or its contacts.
Bottom line is you should be able to run a +12 vdc hot wire to your fuel pump to see if it runs. If it does then you just have to back track the wiring to the pump itself.
