Hey, just changed my fuel filter, started the truck up, ran for about 10 seconds and died. Now it won't start at all? I don't think the priming pump on top is working? Any suggestions? Muchly appreciated..:confused:

prime it until your face is blue.

you probably just lost prime.

it should take you about 30-40 pumps to fill the fuel filter, crack the bleeder screw, prime until it is hard, close bleeder screw then start. if it doesnt start, u could have cracked bleeder screw, or cracked housing, or bad oring placement

I prefilled mine as well. Checked the orings, no cracks anywhere, the primer has zero suction, any other ideas?

Putting fuel in the filter is a big NO_NO. How clean is it--?? Just one small piece of debris will affect the injector system and cost big BUCKS to fix. Your $$$! :rolleyes:

no need to prefill. open bleeder, run lift pump till it squirts out, close screw, start.

may have to prime a couple times. My lb7 was finnicky as shit about that.
