spray some WD-40 into the intake, but not thru the air filter. Take it out.
Then it will run on the WD-40 and not the starter. The air will work its way out quickly if the engine is running at 1200rpm. Also make sure to open the throttle all the way.

It may be self priming, but it's not self bleeding! The smallest air bubble in the injection pump will stop the engine running. I take it that you bled each fuel filter when changing them, but did you bleed at the injection pump? This is a crucial step. I have never been able to change the filters, no matter how carefully I bleed them, without having to bleed at the injection pump. A little air always gets through.
If the fuel lift pump is electric, and working, the injection pump will have fuel
