Reillo 40 F5

I just installed a budures with a Reillo f5. I have an underground tank. The reillo is set up for a single line system. I am getting no fuel at all. even when I put fuel in the fule filter and ran it there was no fuel being pumped, I may get a can of fuel and try that.
Do I need a duel line system? or do I need to prime the lines?

How much vertical lift and horizontal run do you have?
The riello pump primes very slow compared to US pumps.

I have about 6 feet of lift. I took the air guard off and shined a light on the photosensor to trick the system, the motor ran for sometime, still no fuel. I got five gallons of fuel and put it above the burner, it works but Needless to say i am not interested in leaving the system like that.
My old system was a weil mclein with a two line system and that worked good. i am thinking about adding a fuel pump before the fuel filter; but i would rather set up a two line system if that would work.
