There is normally a hand primer on these but that only gets you as far as the pump.


To bleed one of these up I would:


Crack off the outlet on the pump

Pump the hand bleeder until fuel comes out - close outlet

Crack the injectors, one at a time, and turn the engine over a bit to check there's fuel

Crank away like a bastard till it eventually catches. 



Note: the last step is not recommended by Haynes manuals or those with mechanical sympathy, crank for 20-30 seconds max at a time before  stopping for 1 min to cool things down.

There is a primer bulb and I have been using it but there are a few variables like the fuel screw not being at the standard setting and I don't know if the pump timing is right, but I believe it'll start as long as the timing isn't wildly out.

Best way imo is to put a clear, clean piece of pipe on the pump outlet.

Suck on the pipe until diesel comes through. That way you know the pump, filter and lines are as full and air free as possible.
