I just got back inside. I manually filled all the lines with an ear dropper w/diesel, some of them stayed full and others I could see the fuel flow away, back to the tank I presume. I replaced and filled the canister filter too. Finially got it to run and it idled but sounded like it was missing every couple of seconds. While it was idling I went to the back and poured 5 gallons of diesel in, when I took off the cap I heard air rush out so the tank was pressurized. Idled for about 7 minutes until what was in the canister filter ran out, then it got rough and died. I cannot get fuel to go to the clear fuel filter by pumping the purge valve. I see it come up from the tank but stop just short. Shouldn't the pump force fuel to go through the whole system?
