Petrol engines fuel feed

Post by Allan Patrick on Fri Apr 28, 2017 9:55 am

Hi Folks,

Sometimes petrol engines can be a pain to get the fuel through for the first start after a standing for a while. I'm intending to fit one of these, just as seen or a chain saw near you.: -

As cheap as chips and, if it works, should make priming very simple. I'll post how I get on...

Good idea that Allan, I personally wouldn't use one as it's adding another point of possible failure

I'd use the term "fly" very loosely in that context Allan. It's more "roughly guide" I reckon!
