Turn the key on and off about 10-12 times until your feel pressure doesn’t drop on the gauge. I’m guessing you just have some air in the line.

technically no. Starboard electric field pump isnít coming on. Itís brand new but must be faulty. HS power to it

port engine pump comes on


ball valves are definitely open on fuel lines

Canít remember on the 525, is there a schrader valve on the rail? you can push down when you prime the pump? That would let you know that fuel is at the rail.
