Default 05 LLY, cant get prime after fuel filter change

Ok changed filter with a 2 micron kit for XDP, installed kit pumped filter head blead air, then started truck truck ran then died . I am guessing it ran off the fuel in the line. Tried pumping the head with bleader screw off over 500 times and no fuel to the bleader screw.

I am running out of ideas

I watched a good vid from merchant auto and lost of other ones.
I am guessing that its my filter head, I pulled the fuel line off the filter and put my finger on the input and pumped. I did not really feel a lot of pressure. So filter head rebuild I will try next. Hope that works. Check out this vid its really good.


I will post a update
