No fuel Pressure with BDP fuel system

my 97 has a BDP fuel system on it and on day it started having low pressure problems even though it still read a 1/4 tank. Well turns out it ran out of fuel because my gauge decide to quit working properly. Now it wont start and fuel pressure has yet to come back. You can here the pump running but I pulled the fuel lines from the regulator and there was no fuel and I pulled the line post pump and there was no fuel. I can get a little fuel to come out of the drain on the pre pump filter but none from the post pump filter. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

The little plastic thing on the end of your pick up tube may have fell off or the screens are clogged (givin you still have them) I'm just guessing though cause my truck soon as it gets to a 8th it stops picking it up and that's my guess as to what it is I just havent had the time or want to to drop the tank and look

Oh wait you mean it won't pick the fuel back up? Make sure and fill the filter and open the valve on your bowl and turn the key on have a friend help ya if can and have them turn the key off and on (since the pump shuts off after a few seconds) then pressurize the tank with a air compressor/shop vac/your lungs whichever. Just don't over pressurize it haha

yeah it wont pickup I guess, How would I go about pressurizing the tank pull off the return line an apply pressure there? I didnt even think to put fuel in the filters when I changed them.

How I usually do it is through where you put fuel in. I've had 2 do it twice beside the road what I done them times was used a garden hose shorten to about 5 feet stuck one end in the tank wrapped it with a rag and blew like hell on the tank with my mouth lol. But id say just use a air compressor if you can and stuff the hose in the tank and cram a rag around it. but be careful using a air compressor dont wanna over do it. What would probably work best is if you got a shop vac that will blow and suck just switch over to the blowing side and use that. And obvooysly make sure you got 5-10 gallons of fuel in the tank. Idk if any of this is the right way of doing it but its worked for me lol

pull your filter and fill it up with fuel and put it back o, it should prime it back up then pull your return line at the regulator have someone hit the key a few times in till you start getting fuel ou the return. hook it back up and bleeed the air out at the schrader valve ( messy) so have towls packed a round it.before you start the truck.

I just put fuel in the filters and it fired right up as soon as the WTS went off. Thanks for the help!

yep sometimes you have to fill the filters to get the pumps to prime up.
