Default Lister hr3 as a generator

I recently found a lister petter hr3 with a Stamford alternator.

I found a note on a battery the last test run was aug. 2010 so I'm pretty sure I can get it to run.

I cannot get it to prime.

Can someone give me a step by step cold start procedure including priming?

Did you ever find the operating procedures for bleeding and priming?
I have a HR2 and was reading it in the manual while I was working on it last weekend.
I can try to send you a copy of the manual if you don't have it already.
