Do Oberdorfer Pumps self Prime?

Just swapped out my impeller (Universal 5416 / Oberdorfer seawater pump). All put back together and no water coming out the exhaust...I'm going back down today to try to prime the intake hose...any advice or similar experience out there?
Another possibility is an air lock preventing the priming and to loosen the impeller face cap slightly to let the air escape...any thoughts would be appreciated...thanks!
