Stuck! Fuel system bleed!

I am replacing the fuel filter and it seems like the manual lift pump ain't lifting squat! Been pumping the damn thing for 30 min and hasn't drawn anything in to the filter.

I'm following the workshop manual direction cross checked with my Haynes manual and the advice Red gave me.. Still outa luck. No prime, no drivey!

Thx!

Are you feeling any resistance when you pump? Thinking the lift pump cam is probably not in the right position.
Turn the engine over. If you have the bleed screw loosen diesel will dribble out.

I feel zero resistance. Can the cam position be changed? Or is the pump dead?

All set many thanks. Red is right. Bleed bleed bleed.

Ps you CAN fill a 2 piece fuel filter with diesel to help prime! Messy as all hell but I bet it stayed 3/4 full before it was tightened on there!

A brake vacuum bleeder works well for drawing fuel through too.
