My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Crack the line that comes out of the back of the head to help pull the air out when cranking. This is the easiest way I have done it. You want to do it right before the regulator. If easier, and messy, remove the return and plug with your finger. Just have someone ready to kill the engine when the fuel starts spraying. Then put the line back on. I made a hose awith fitting from hydraulic store to spray into bucket for when I do that option. Other option is to put air to the fuel tank and the fuel will push up to the pump and then the rest is done from there. Topping off the filters helps as well. Otherwise, the engine uses a special tool to vacuum the fuel up to the heads to assist in removing the air. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
