T into the line that feeds your pump, then hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the open port.

check your fuel filter too, cause we had one that leaked and it would get air into the fuel lines, if it sat over 15 minutes

There is a prime lever on the side of the lift pump - give it 20 flips or so. The IP needs a couple of #s pressure to start the first lick. If the pressure is bleeding off the prime will repressurise the pump, if the lines are sucking air it will often put the air back in the tank and it gives you time to look for leaks from the lift pump lines
