Are you unlocking the priming pump? The plunger knob is serrated if I remember correctly and has to be unlocked by turning the knob CCW.
Don't forget to push down & relock CW when done

Here's a pic of the 6LYA set up.

The images are to blurred to see, but the narrative is what I’m doing with the exception of the bleed screw which is attached to the hose on top in the center of the lid.

The pump is threaded and seems to be working.

Success!

I loosened the center bolt at the bottom until it weep fuel and then tuned a little extra. This broke the seal at the top of the canister so when I pumped a little more fuel leaked around the top of the canister, tightened the bolt, pumped a few more times and turned the key.👍

Thanks to everyone that helped. This is why I love this forum!!!
