Check the primary (clear, in line) filter for fuel or air.

Be sure to prime the new spin on filter full of fuel.

If you have a paper filter, don't oil it.

You need to loosen, not remove, the canister filter and use the hand pump to purge air from the system. First you’ll get bubbles then fuel will come out of the top of the canister filter. Tighten the canister filter and start. Just put a fluid drain pan under the filter to catch the fuel.
