Problem solved!!! Thanks for the community's help. We secessfully got the engine primed and started! The suggestions about making sure the manuel pump was fully extended and rotating the cam was especially helpful.

Is ABYC thinking straight?

When it is all said and done, all insurance claims are derived from someone's incompetence, whether it be driving your car badly, leaving the front door of the house unlocked, forgetting your I-phone on the park bench, diving into the pool with your digital camera in your pocket, sailing your boat into rocks, doing your own maintenance, the list is endless and all of them will be paid out. Those claims that are not derived from human error are often named "Act of God" and this is the most likely area of claim rejection.
Sorry, I'll stop now before this becomes a thread hijack.

Also diesel is generally not considered a fire hazard by insurance companies or at least none of those that I have insured with.
Just asking . . . .

You can alway try this :
Disconnect fuel line that goes between manual pump and filter
Disconnect at filter/ incoming side
Nothing coming out ...Then SV Prairoerose is right You may just have run out of fuel! There is very little chance that the manual pump would be defective
Fuel coming out ? Reconnect and now disconnect on the outgoing side of your filter Filter could be blocking if not inside properly
Other simple way Remove filter and try without
But remember that if you try these you are adding more air and will have to bleed

|SVPrairieRose||Dumb question, but not so if its the right question... are you out of fuel? Any chance you pulled the line of the pickup?|

|lonnieray||It is a Yanmar 2GM20R 1986. We have successfully primed previously. We filled the sfprimary fuel filter, but our book said not to fill the secondary filter. The manuel fuel pump does not have the feel of resistance and pushing fuel through as it did previously.|

|CaptainForce||I continue to be a great fan of the turkey baster. I find I'm able to remove a lot of air faster if I can pour a little diesel into the highest points at hose fittings or opened ports. This with a little electical or machanical fuel pump activity and bubble release from a bleed screw will shorten the task. Take care an djoy, Aythya crew|
