Prime the separator. If you don't, it's like the biggest case of vapor lock possible. When the old canister comes off, the gas drains from both directions and it needs to be filled. If you have a TBI motor, drizzle some gas into the throttle body and start it. The pump will draw gas faster this way. Cranking it for a long time just wears down the battery and heats up the starter.
