Huffng and puffing

Recommended Posts

I have a PAP setup, and am considering removing the primer bulb from the fuel system because I travel a lot and the primer bulb always stinks of fuel.

I have tried priming my carb by blowing on the vent hose, but jeezzz... I had to blow so hard to get the fuel to the carb I thought my eyes were going to pop out... :shock:

Any tips on making this easier? Must be the same distance roughly for all ppg set-ups?

Are you pressing in the diaphragm on the carb as you blow???

No priming bulb on the Miniplane, and it's quite an easy blow to get the fuel in the carb--- as long as you press the diaphragm.....

There are definite merits in eliminating the primer bulb from the circuit.... I used to find that most of the problems on the fuel system started here- mainly air leeking in through tiny holes and cracks, or the valve sticking. It's recommended that the bulbs are changed frequently.
