How do you know you have air in the fuel line?

If you are seeing air in the the plastic filter (not sure if you have one), this is normal for all my Benz diesels.

Check the prefilter oring; it is at the start of the fuel delivery path and a common source of air.

More than likely; I'm not familiar with your CDI pump but know it has a few clear plastic fuel lines using oring seals to deliver fuel. One of those seals is probably allowing air to enter the system.
