It's got to be the lift pump or an air leak from the housing itself, but if what you say is correct, then I'll say lift pump, because NO fuel is going into the secondary fuel housing with the top removed to watch the flow.
ok, lets see a picture of your fuel arrangement.

with the top off, there will be no fuel flow, because there is no suction.
the top has to be on for fuel to enter the filter. in order for the filter to empty, there has to be a leak.
