I have a small adjustable wrench. But the I lines are so tight I have concerns of breaking one off if I use force on the wrench.....(All this for such a simple thing...) I've changed dozens of spin ons before and never had such a hassle starting up. I've had to prime the pump manually but then it turns over.
Gotta be a reason for this other than air...What about straight ATF in the filter to begin with? It started up, when I first put it on; then it stalled right out, and hasn't turned over since. I've pumped liike 200 times and cranked it with the key until the battery drained charged it up and cranked again....

If you want to fix a M/B properly, you're going to need some tools.

When you are pumping the primer pump, can you hear the IP pressure relief valve opening? It will make a "Pfft, pfft" sound near the end of each pump stroke.

Can you see fuel in the plastic fuel filter? If so, I would suggest bleeding the system again. Best bet is to loosen the return line fitting on the top of the filter housing (not the filter center bolt) then pump until you get fuel without bubbles from that fitting, then tighten the fitting while continuing to pump. Pump until you can hear the relief valve opening.

Also, do you still have the original primer pump, with the white knob that has to be unscrewed before use?

I had

This issue and it turned out to be the seal ring on top of the spin on housing. I was able to get started after replacing the filter, but it was difficult. After driving it around a little I saw fuel was leaking from around that bolt. I was unable to tighten it enough to make it stop. I replaced with the copper seal ring, no more leaks or hard starts.

We've had bad luck around here with that bleeping copper seal ring, so I have gone the High-temp-ugly-silicon-route (works great! )

Check out our two cars silicon, this is the '83, mine looks similar but isn't quite as messy:
