pool pump will not prime

Hi Guys, I have a friend with a Sta-Bilt 3/4 horse and it will not prime. The pool is full to the overflow, I have check all fittings nothing loose or cracked. Line from skimmer not stopped up. I removed the cover and the discharge line. Filled the pump and turn it on. It pumps very little but the garden hose supplies more water than it will pump. I have the pump housing separated and nothing is broken or clogged. There is no water leaking. I am at a loss. Please help. Thank You

you have checked the impellar? Deep inside it? Have you tried to prime in recirculate? or backwash? What type filter?

could also be lid oring, crack in lid, usually it is the male adapter going into front of pump, get loose and sucks air.
