I changed the filter on top of the pump a while back, that fixed it for a month and now its back to hard starts. The filter is half the price of a pump, so I might as well replace the whole thing if I am doing it again. I also want to clean the tank out.

could be the fuel pressure regulator in your pump? Might be draining the fuel out of your rail, which is why you have to prime it.

I replaced it once already with a brand new regulator.

Is your Schrader valve on the fuel rail bad? It would cause air to enter.

Ever ridden a bicycle? The part where you fill up your tire is a Schrader valve. Cheap and easy fix

Ah, I just know them as valve stems. I cant find a parts store that have any though. Or is it just a bike valve stem that fits on the fuel rail?

Any bicycle ive ever dealt with has been a schrader valve, more robust, easily found, easily replaced, and no locknut to deal with. Im fairly sure that any bicycle now a days will use a schrader valve with an exception for a racing bicycle (like tour de france racing not your typical walmart racing bike) and the reasoning for this is because the tires are too narrow for the schrader valve.

I think the shrader valve is what he needs to fix his fuel rail

Yes it is that would be the cheaper and easier solution. As long as its the only problem. Not sure if an auto parts store would have them I don't see why not. Should come in a package with like 4 of them and a tool to change them out. DONT torque it in there just be easy with it or you can damage it.
