Hi ViewingPete, On the modern diesel there is no manual fuel lift pump. Garages have a pump that fits in the fuel line to draw the fuel up from the tank. I improvised one myself out of an old hand oil pump and it has worked for me every time, 11 services now. The fuel has to be drawn up from the tank through the filter to the common rail pump. The first time I tried cranking the engine on the key but soon realised I was killing my starter moter. (not recomded).  If you can't make a pump yourself you may be able to hire one. Hope this helps.
