That's an odd setup, but you can make it work. You'll need to do some manual labor to prime the pump. My recommendation would be to fill your loop up mostly, and at the highest point disconnect the tube from the compression fitting/barb and simply suck on it to force the liquid through your pump. That should prime it, just be sure to fill it up completely, and bleed the system very well so there isn't any air trapped in there.
Of course the simplest solution would be to get a pump top reservoir, which would solve your problems and make maintenance a LOT easier!
You should also consider using a PCI Pass-through plate for your tubing, it would make it look a LOT cleaner.
