Expert:  Gary replied 2 months ago.

ok on top of the fuel filter housing can you find the vent ?

Expert:  Gary replied 2 months ago.

open this vent here and ;pump the hand pump by hand until raw fuel comes out of the vent then close the vent and pump the hand pump until the pump is rock hard then try to start it

crank it over a few times good

if it still will not prime it again

these can take you to have to prime it 5 to 7 times by doing that

keep doing that until it starts up

once it starts up the truck will be fine
