Hello B.Hastings/Customer,


To bleed air from fuel system, fill up fuel filters completely full, loosen bleed screw on top of fuel filter housing. Manually actuate fuel transfer pump primer lever until fuel flows from open bleeder screw top of filter housing, then tighten screw. Loosen bleeder screw on injection pump. Actuate fuel pump primer lever and re tighten bleed screw when you see a steady fuel flow. If engine fails to start, loosen high pressure line connections at injectors. Crank engine until fuel emerges from fuel lines. Re tighten lines, then crank engine. Hope that helps you out. Let me know if you have any questions.Thanks, DieselPro
