I really don't remember for that particular event, but I had done the start-by-sucking routine many times in my life, and I'm still around. Not too pleasant though, and I doubt if I would ever do it again, since you can buy a hand-squeeze siphon pump today in an auto-parts store or from Harbor Freight for less than 10 bucks. Or try using the fuel pump as you mentioned. It probably will work.
