180? LS180? What do you have for fuel transfer/primer pump? Dose filter housing have manual diaphragm on top of filter housing? Does filter housing have electric pump?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

The fuel system has to be opened past the filter, then pump is used to pump the fuel into the system, and to get all the air out. With diaphragm pump, you have to ,manually pump it. With electric pump, you have to turn the key on and let the pump run.

Or it can have transfer pump on side of block, that has lever that has to be pumped manually. Bleed screw will either be on filter housing or at the injection pump, near the inlet line.
