Bleeding new oil supply line troubles.

Im having trouble bleeding a new supply run ( 3/8) for my beckett burner.

It's a brand new run, about 17'.
I've gone through the reset cycle about 15 times now, bleeder wide open, getting air - but oil never comes. doesnt seem to want to prime the line

Any tips or tricks that might come in handy so I can get this line bled and heat back on?

Did you check the filter cartridge case when you put the new filter in for air leaks and make sure it was full of oil before you started it??

Got it, Apparently there is a pump prime mode on my becket afg.

Hold red button 30 seconds, green light will flash, let go... click repeatedly until burner kicks back on. you are now in pump prime mode.

the burner will run for 4 minutes instead of the 15-20 second lock out cycle.
