It helps to prefill the filters with fuel before you screw them back on. Other than that, to move fuel with the priming pump, you have to have air tight connections on the suction side and a bleed screw open on the pressure side to allow the air bubble to escape. Have you been successful in the past in priming the system, or is this the first time?
