push the plunger on the lift pump about 100 times until you hear the overflow valve make a kind of squirting sound. then crack two or three injectors. crank the motor over until fuel start squirting out of the cracked injectors. tighten the injectors back up and crank it with your foot to the floor until she catches.

you are going to have to crack the injectors lines and crank on the truck till fuel shoots out. then tighting up... it might start with them cracked open then shut it off and start tighting them all back up..

Yea. loosten 1,2, and 3 injectors about half turn, crank it till you spit fuel out, tighten them and then put the pedal to the floor and crank till she fires. Once its running, maybe crack the injectors open one at a time just to make sure there is no more air in the lines.

pour some gas into the intake and pump the throttle until the spark plugs fire it off. maybe choke it too.

Try this if cracking the injectors is not working. Loosen the return line on your pump first, then bump the starter. When fuel starts coming out that is when you tighten the return line back up and start cracking the injectors. Good luck man running out of GAS is a SOB!
