Bleeding Air on filter housing ?

Okay what's the proper procedure to bleed the air out of the filter housing.. I know it may seem like a dumb question but?

do you pump it up and they open bleeder then pump it once then close the bleeder before you re;ease it or?


do you open bleeder and pump or ?

There's a good video on YouTube that shows the process actually. When I changed mine, I pumped until fuel came out held the button down and put in the blessed screw with fuel coming out.

Okay thanks.... Just wasn't sure you could pump it with teh plug out ... I thought that after you pushed the it down it would suck air on the release stroke ...so I guess not.

I rebuilt my filter assy and added a brass bleeder screw.. a while back ,,, and that solved my long crank start problem... but it seemed to come back... I just re bled the filter assy and upon loosing the bleeder it seemed loose. as the instructions said to just snug..but I guess after a while with the heat from the motor and possible contraction of the o ring it became loose. So I tighten it down really snug this time.. it seems to start normal now....

Thanks everyone for the input...
