I bought an inexpensive hand-operated transfer pump
from Harbor Frieght, probally not more than $15 or so.
Looks like a ball inflation pump w/ 2 hoses on it. I
clamp its suction hose to the return fitting on the
injection pump and pump the the handle until fuel is
expelled from the other line. I use mine when I
replace the fuel filter.
