I would also occasionally bleed air through the shrader valve on the fuel pressure regulator when trying to start. I'm not sure you'll get much through the piston stage of the 2-stage mechanical pump, plus there will probably be air in the fuel rails anyway. Cheers!

As mentioned, when cranking (and if it doesn't start right up), just stop cranking and go press the shrader valve to bleed any air and then continue trying to start. Lather, rinse, repeat until it starts. I've really only had it happen once where it took 4 or 5 cycles of this before it started. Cheers!
