NH 555E need help to prime

    I have a 99 555e and it started dying on me occasionally. Yesterday it died and would not re start. I read some threads about algae or fiber in the banjo bolts... so I disconnected mine and found a wad of brownish fiber. I cranked it and it ran great for 5 seconds. I found the glass bowl under the pump and I thought it was black plastic or steel at first. It was really dirty and was full of that same fiber and algae. Now that I have those two items clean I won't stay running. I can turn on key and hear the pump buzzing and after a minute It will crank and run for 5 seconds.

    My hoe has the fuel filter with the electric pump above it on the housing. Basically, I'm just trying to get it primed and some fuel in the bowl and hoping.... for a little help.

    Please help...

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
