The PSD are a self priming system, I usually fill the filter housing with fresh fuel when I change mine.

On the obs trucks no you just put a screwdriver or something across the lid and turn, on the 99-up they have a 1/2 square on top to put a 1/2 ratchet in

You go to your garage then you upload the picture to your garage then you can add the picture to your signature.

By the way what milford do you live in. It wouldn't be Milford Michigan would it.
