Primer bulb leaking both externally and internally.

Recommended Posts

This is the external leak due to weak spring clamps.

All fixed.

As you can see i like to test things and fix them if i can.I will order a complete fuel line with end connectors to keep as a spare.

Sorry about the sound quality as it wasn't the best.

Hopefully this series of short vids helps someone out one day.

Cheers.

Is there a trophy or money involved for that title?🤔You know me,i hate stuffing around waiting or going out to buy things if i can fix things myself for a fraction of the time/cost involved.

I'll order a spare fuel line kit to keep onboard the boat.

Good on you, Fab! It’s interesting to see how they work. I gotta admit though, I’m the type of guy who’d just buy a whole new bulb, hose and fittings and toss the old one! 🤪

Good on you for fixing up what you have Fab. I’m a bit like that as well. 

One thing I’ve learnt with the primer bulbs is to spend the extra and find a quality one. I used to buy them from Bias and they would harden and be useless within a year. I then bought a Quicksilver one and it’s been excellent. I would imagine genuine would be pretty good too. 

The primer bulb is definitely one item you need to hunt down and get a quality (name brand) one.
