Hi,

Thank you for the response.

Crack all the lines loose at the injectors, crank the engine over 10-15 second intervals, resting 15 seconds, not to burn the starter out.

When you see all fuel, no bubbles, tighten the lines, hold the throttle wide open and start

the engine, hold the throttle to floor unit the engine runs smooth.

I hope this helps you.
