did that. Still wouldnt start cycled like 20 times. BUT.. I got it I turned the key forward and go under the truck and opened the drain valve. All the air evacuated instantly and then fuel came out. Closed the valve and turn the key off then to run and instantly fired.

Just an fyi , there is also a shrader valve on top at the fuel cooler resevior that is the highest point in the fuel system to bleed air off. I had trouble once after filter change called my dealer and they walked me through on the phone. Glad you got er runnin though.
