Gettin the air out after a fuel filter change

Anyone have a good way to purge out the air after changing the fuel filter, Im on my 3 rd filter and was a real pain, trying to get all the air out, I tried turning the key on-off several times, worked good on my 2008, cracked the top filter & crank engine, just took alot to get it to start again,( can't be good for the starter) Did they change the fuel system on the newer 6.4s?

I cycled the key 5-6 times 20-30 seconds each and fired right up.

If you turn the key to the run position, put your head down by the fuel tank and listen to the tank. You can heard the air when it returns to the tank. takes about 5 minutes in my truck. Click the key and it fires right up

I changed my filters for the 2nd time a couple weeks ago. I was careful to purge, and it started right up only to die a few seconds later. Wouldn't start up without me going through the purge cycle a few more times. And even then it wouldn't start right up. Sounded pretty hard on the starter, but once it fired up it roared like a lion. :-)

I have had much better luck just letting the pump run for 4-5 mins then short times.
