i replaced the hpop on my buddies 02 7.3 i got everything put back together...when i removed the fuel canister i drain it and cleaned it got it all back in and now i cant get it to pump fuel into the canister...i was wondering if i had to prime the pump by filling the canister back up any ideas,,,i did it on my old truck but it was a couple of years ago...any suggestions...also i think the relay closest to the the cab gets real hot when the key is in the on position...
