Replaced fuel filter sensor now it won't start

I have a '94 power stroke, the fuel filter sensor was leaking so I unhooked all the hoses to include the fittings on the FPR and pulled the filter bowl and replaced the fuel filter sensor and put it back together. I filled the filter bowl up with fuel and now it won't start. I checked the fuses #4 25 amp fuse is blown, I replaced it and it still won't start. I don't have a manual so I don't know what #4 fuse is for. Any help would be appreciated.

I bet the fuse blew again.
Unplug the fuel bowl heater, then replace the fuse, then you'll be good.

Thanks for the reply, I thought I read that the #22 fuse is for the fuel heater, the one that is blown is #4, unfortunately I don't have a manual so i don't know what it's for. I pulled everything back apart to make sure that I did everything right and when I get it back together I will try to unplug the fuel heater.

#4 would be for the power to the trailer marker lamps relay and trailer backup lamps relay (which shouldn't affect engine starting). Cheers!

Idk what I was thinking. You probably have air in the system. Just have to crank it out.

Thanks for the info, will it just crank the air out or is there a way to bleed it?
