THIS WAS NOT IN THE MANUAL. There I did get air out and the tightened down. As per at least two or three commenters, on this and another site (cruisers), I decided to try starting it before going to the injectors, as I stated the other day (when I got just a cough and stopped because I hadn't warmed the oil and trickle charger was not on one battery). It started right off today, with a little extra help of encouragement with the starter. I ran it under load also and checked all fittings. Good as new!!
