Fuel Lift Pump Questions

On our 1973 Newport Mark II, we have a Vetus M3.10

What I can't find is a lift pump to bleed the lines after a service.

If you look at this photo of the engine, at the very bottom right, you'll see what I'm guessing is an electric fuel lift pump? Looks like a little black coffee can, with fuel lines. The former owners said to turn on the Blower switch on the DC panel before starting engine. When we turn on "Blower", this little coffee can is what makes the noise as if a little motor is running.

If this is indeed the fuel pump, I'm wondering what the proper procedure is for bleeding the lines?
