I agree with JohnPollard above. If the gasket on the raw water pump is leaking it can and will suck air in and possibly fail to draw water in. Put some sealant on it and try again, if it still does not prime follow the other instructions that have been given here. Start at the seacock and make sure you are getting water, then check strainer and on through the system.

Good luck, John
