I filled the filter with the diesel fuel that was in the old filter. When I took the new filter off, there was no fuel in it. Also, I noticed, havnt see anyone talk about this, however. The 3/4" bolt that holds the fuel filter in place, is hollow. It has a hole on both sides of the bolt. I took pictures. Apparently, this hole is supposed to line up with the fuel line that comes in to the filter, but there are no marks on that bolt that would help you line it up when you are tightening it back down. After I filled the filter up with fuel, I put the filter back on, tightend up the bolt. I made a mark on the bolt to line it up. But, still no start. Im charging my battery a bit and will go try again to start her up.
