you are going to have to turn the key many times to get the pump to prime....especially if you had to install the draw straw.....wait about 20secs between key turns...or just bump the starter...the pump will run for approx 20sec..it will prime just give it a little time..you'll notice a huge change in pump sound when it finally primes....leave the b-nut loose on the vp...and you will get fuel spraying out in no time. or try filing the water separator filter (if you got the fuel/air/water filters) with diesel...might make it go faster...

you can try bleeding the system by leaving the key in the ACC. position and losten up the vp44 connection till fuel comes out. If that doesn't work you can always call Pureflow for help.
