if you have to hand prime it for it to run then that fuel filter bottom seals or the filter housing itself is sucking in air and causing the system to loose its prime

if the filter is new then be sure the bottom of the filter is not leaking anything or sucking air if that looks fine and the fuel line from the filter housing to the tank looks good with no fuel stains at all then replace the fuel filter housing and again be sure the fuel filter seal and the bottom fuel filter seals are good and not causing a leak or air to get into the system

that corrects 99 % of these doing this

it is suck a common issue when you do a google search for housings you will see how many there are as these where a big issue
