I'm thinking of installing a pump like for the outboards, they have it at westmarine and I think I have a 1/2 hose, at only $12 that seems far easier than finding the pump on the engine.

still nt sure about this but only one way to find out if I can do it
I did that and you won't get anywhere with it... revisit the post I posted the link to...Bleeding your diesel is more than two bleed points. You have to do the entire engine...do the pump I recommend - a bit pricier than the $12 jobby (which I originally did) - but unless you really enjoy masturbating the task of bleeding - the fastest and most versatile way to go is installing an aux pump ...
