Sorry for no reply

You can get to a connection on the pipework under the bonnet if you have the primer in the pipe follow this back towards the bulkhead and you will see a joint

If you have a fuel filter with the primer on top it is a little harder to decide which pipe but the feed is the larger of the 2 and joint is in the same place at bulkhead
remove the feed and put the end in can of diesel the return wont matter at momment
Prime it up using plunger or bulb type thing on pipe with ignition on when the pipes are relitavely bubble free try starting best to get someone to make sure pipe is in diesel in can or you will draw more bubbles in

If all is well car should start quite easily

If it does then you need to check pipes tank connections etc
Diesel does not always leak out through joints/breaks but air gets in as the fuel pump sucks the fuel through

Heater plugs on this engine are not essential even 1 working would start it quite well
Some engines wont start atall without them but this one does
Currently in mr espace's garage:
