Hydro-Boost Replacement

Has anyone replaced their Hydro0boost? I am in process of switching it out. I have everything hooked back up but i need to bleed system which requires cranking engine without starting it! I dont know how to keep my 7.3 from starting!!!

If you let it start it blows the "O" ring seal at the hydro-boost....oops

Any help is appreciated.

Pull the #30 fuse. It powers the PCM and won't let it start.

No problem. Instead of pulling that fuse, you could pull the one for the fuel pump but I don't know what number that is. The owners manual will tell you if you have one.
