Default cleaned fuel bowl=no start?

After having issues with my 52 v8 jets, i moved on to cleaning the glass fuel bowl on my fuel pump. Lots of debris on the bottom. After cleaning and making sure I set the glass correctly onto the gasket and secured the bracket, I proceeded to start the car. Engined turned strong but did not fire up. This has happened before and I had to call AAA to get it to the shop. Can't figure out how to get this to work? Did a lot of forum searching but still have not found the solution! The pump was working fine before I removed the glass! All the lines seem to be secure and in good condition. I primed the bowl with fuel, and filled the float bowl with fuel. What else?
