I used to believe that cycling the key was all that was needed, and had proven true countless times until last week. A friend ran out of fuel in his 7.3 Excursion, and by the time we were done we had disconnected the fuel pump, removed it, put it inlet side up with a hose full of fuel attached to the inlet and hooked it up to the battery to manually prime it ad get the air out. I then put caps on it to keep the fuel in it, reinstalled it and then slipped the caps off an hooked up the lines. It couldn't push the air in the pump out to let the fuel in even with the discharge side unhooked and open to the atmosphere. I had no access to a compressor where he was at.

Staying stock as long as it survives...
We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything, with nothing, in no time at all.
