Electric fuel as back up

This sounds like a stupid question, so here goes. I have a 1978 Wellcraft Cuddy with a Johnson 140 and the VRO has been removed. Ok so why ask this question Ron? I added a fuel/water separator and when I prime the line it refuses to prime. If I revert back to a normal line, no problem. I have also filled the filter before installation and that did not help. I thought about adding a electric pump to just prime the line then turn it off and let the engine pump take over. Am I a nut case? Anyone have an idea? Thank You Ron E.
