No Fuel in Filter Housing

Repaired the O rings in the HPOP lines, took the filter housing off and put it back on, now no fuel in the bowl. I can hear noise like the pump running for several seconds when key is turned on, but no flow. Where and what to do next?

I have, the pump sounds terrible and now fuel going into the housing. I am heading out to check some stuff, the fuse for the fuel heater, fpr connection. not sure if the pump shuts off after two seconds but I would think it will keep running. I hurt my shoulder trying to push it into the garage.

Fuel Problems

Dumb question, but I have to ask. Do you have the filter in it, or are you attmepting to get fuel in the bowl with the filter out and the lid off.

I ask because if there is no fuel filter in it, the fuel will not flow.

IIRC the fuel will still flow to the bowl without the filter, just not down the standpipe to the heads since there is a valve in the standpipe that a pin inside the filter pushes down to open.

helping to prime fuel

I dont know if this will help but, you might try getting some fuel and opening the housing and putting fuel in the housing manually as a way to possibly prime the system. If you have air in the line, it may be not working properly and/or sounding abnormal. Worth a shot anyway, doesnt cost a dime lol.

That's a good idea but at almost $3.00 per gallon it will def cost a dime!
