I assume this has a simms-CAV pump on it. There should be a small bleed screw near the top of the inj pump, approx 5/16 hex, that may be screwed into another fitting beneath it. Loosen this screw, work the priming lever on the mechanical transfer pump, or if it does not have a mech priming lever on transfer pump, gravity should help push most of the air out of the system, then as the air bubbles stop coming out of the pumpand clear fuel appears, tighten the bleed screw, loosen at least 2 high pressure fuel lines, crank engine, and when either engines starts to fire, or when fuel starts running down the side of the engine, tighten high pressure lines, and system should be just about bled. Engine should now run, and may need to run a minute or two to work out the remaining air. In a nutshell, get clear fuel to inj pump, bleed air at injectors, engine should now run if it was running before. (i.e. no mechanical failure)
