I usually take the fuel line off as close as I can get to the IP and use a push pull hand pump . I have one for doing oil burners.

yea that was meant as a joke. i wonder why GM didnt have enough sence to use a pump like whats found on tractors or the 12 valve cummins. with that little pumping arm on the lift pump so you can prime the filter and injection pump if something like this happens. might be hard to reach though .....

You have a priming bulb? Could you post a pic of that? I've NEVER seen any sort of primer on a 6.2.......
