Same idea as the last comment but to speed things up air up fuel tank to help push fuel thru the system. Use a rag around the fuel cap takes a bit to fill tank with air unless fairly full after that very little air pressure to move the fuel up thru the lines.

The fuel filter setup on my 92 had a primer setup that uses a primer bulb for an outboard motor. It just clips on and you drop a hose in some fuel and start squeezing the bulb. It pushes the fuel all the way through and back to the return.

Only does any good if the return line is disconnected, or other wise vented, otherwise you are pressurizing both the supply and return and no movement will take place.

Always had to check to see if someone put a dime in the return line ( or Vicegrips ) anyway.

I prime the secondary filter with a hand primer pump and a half gallon of diesel. The hand pump I use was originally used for the artic cold start kit.

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions, what we did was disconnect the fuel return line and pumped fuel there back to the fuel rails. once this was done fired right up.
