Make sure your pump is connected to the proper voltage. There are 2 settings High Voltage and Low Voltage. Follow diagram for your voltage. The A and B settings are for the inside motor wiring and the lines are for you wire sources.

2001 Chevy Silverado, 5.3 had only 5 pounds oil pressure, replaced sensor, still 5 lbs of pressure, replace crank driven oil pump, 0 pounds pressure, pickup tube good, o-ring installed correctly on pickup...

remove the pump and the cover off the gears
fill the spaces of the gear teeth with Vaseline or clean grease
this is priming the pump so that a vacuum is created to suck up the oil
new pumps will not be primed
the grease /Vaseline will dissolve in the oil and will not cause any problems

New fuel pump won't prime. No fuel from gas tank to engie. Lines are clear.

The pump works without priming anything. If the tank is vented, and you have fuel in the tank, and the pump is installed correctly, it should pump fuel out.
Are you sure the pump is getting power and ground ?

I think you had the same problem that my aunt had with her Cavalier. The fuel pump
failed. Grandfather installed an aftermarket fuel pump and it worked fine. I hope this
is the solution. (As a side note, I think you were losing prime through the pump).

Saeco via venezia coffee machine wont prime

Turn machine on and make sure that the knob is fully opened, if the pump does not engage(vibrate) then either the machine is not getting power or there is a problem with the pump.
