Turn the key and hold it for a few seconds, it should fill up and start. Just be sure you do not have any leaks.
I've not once used that primer lever to prime the bowl. It will happen.
Jim - This worked.

Thanks again everyone for your help!

Re: Chris Craft Model K Fuel Pump Replacement

Do I need to remove the pump or can I just crank the engine over a couple of times?

Re: Chris Craft Model K Fuel Pump Replacement

Thank you for the responses.

I installed the new pump but I'm not able to get it to prime the fuel bowl using the primer lever on the pump. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot? Also, I placed some fuel in the bowl first before installing.

I’m planning to replace the fuel pump on my Chris Craft 1948 Model K engine and wanted to check to see if anyone had details on how to properly do this.

Model K Engine will not turn over

I have a 1948 Chris-Craft Deluxe Runabout with a Model K engine. This past weekend it stopped running. It was starting and running smoothly without any hesitation. This Monday it started fine and then died a few seconds later. I did a restart and the same thing occurred. The third time it stayed run...
