    Try putting a little diesel in the ports and see if it fires up that way if you want or get a inline hand pump and draw it through that way to get the air out

    Why give up on it if you have done the hard work? i cannot help as i know nothing about soot chuckers but it seems like it needs the diesel purging by what you have said?

    It might just have a air lock mate that's why you can not pull the fuel through.

    Get a inline hand pump and just pump it like your bleading it like brakes it's easy just don't leave it open while it's retuning
