Easy one. On top of the filter head is a primer button, and just inboard of that is a bleeder screw, 13mm head with a slot for a screwdriver, black plastic, after you get filter installed, crack open the bleeder and prime away, may take 30 pumps to get fuel out of bleeder screw, once you get fuel, tighten and prime another 10 pumps or so until primer gets hard to push, then start, done
