Subject: keep bleeding, it's normal when run out of fuel

Unscrew a little bolt that is in the high pressure pump (where the injectors are) and keep bleeding by pumping the manual one that is on the starboard side of the engine kind of underneath the fuel filter. Might take 1/2 hour but it's not a 2 people job, you can do it alone.

Good luck

Hey Randall, good to see you on the forum. Probably no damage done,I agree with Ardi, you might need to replace the crush washer at the filter if it leaks after bleeding.
Here's the procedure from our Fuji brothers.


It's so hard to get to the fuel pump I'd try the cracking the last injector and pump till your thumb is about to fall off. I installed a electric fuel pump from NAPA, before the engine. I only run it to bleed the system, otherwise fuel just flows thru it. Good Luck
