First Fuel Filter Change - Cant Start
Did my first fuel filter change on the rig, everything seemed to go pretty smooth except I can't get it to start now.
Basically here's what I did:
Went out to the truck, opened the top cap then drained using the water separator valve until nothing came out. Took out the rail cap/filter, cleaned it out, put the new o ring on the cap and lubed it up with some clean oil, then put in new rail filter and put the cap back on.
Went back up to the top, took off cap then cleaned it out, put new o ring on the cap and lubed it up with some clean oil, put the new filter in and put the cap back on.
Primed it 8x for 30 seconds (until I heard the pump stop), started for about 5 seconds then died. Primed it again 8x, wouldn't start. Primed it again 8x, wouldn't start.
Figured there was air in it so I loosened the top cap and primed it 6x. I could hear bubbling coming out of the tube in the housing, thought eventually fuel would come out but after about 15 primes (30seconds each) still nothing but bubbling. Put the cap back on, primed it 6x then tried to start, still wouldn't start.
Loosened cap again, primed it more (could still hear bubbling). Took out filter and looked inside, there is nothing in the housing.
What am I doing wrong?
