    Default Installing Mechanical fuel pump Mercruiser 470

    I installed a replacement mechanical pump because the old one was leaking at the diaphram. Now I am getting no fuel to the carb and I'm curious what I could have done wrong? It seemed simple enough to replace. Do I need to prime the pump somehow?

    A little help please.
