What trouble you having mate?
Usually they hand prime on the fuel filter under the bonnet. If it's not having it, try feeding from a can post the filter. If it fires up then chances are you might be getting air in the fuel lines pre the filter.

Well I have a new pump and filter fill filter with fuel prime with pump try starting she runs then stalls filter is low or empty.
I'm guessing leaking hose in fuel line from tank or in fuel tank?
