Not getting fuel after replaced fuel lines

Okay, so I replaced the fuel lines and I can't get the car started again. I have her on a battery charger, and I cracked all the injector lines and a small amount of fuel has come out, but she still doesn't want to turn over.

I know on the 80-85's you have the primer, but how do I prime the fuel lift pump on a 87 300sdl.

Any help would be great. Thanks

Using starter motor crank 30 sec's at a time on the D2 tank. If a single veggie tank run a temp fuel bottle to get it going first. Once running look for the air leak; especially on the veggie side of the plumbing.

Holding it on for 30 seconds sounds like a long time. Are you sure 30 isn't damaging anything?

You have to crank the starter to reprime (get the air out) the fuel system. Crank 30 secs, wait 10 secs, crank 30 more; do that 3 times then let starter cool for an hour while you charge it and then give it another go.
