    primer ball

    i have a gp1200 that i replaced all the fuel lines and installed a new fuel filter. i also installed a primer ball on the fuel supply line just after the fuel filter. when i try to prime the carbs the primer ball never gets tight like it should but i can see the fuel flowing through the lines, when i attempt to start the engine i crank and crank but the engine will not start. if i pull one of the spark plugs and put a few drops of gas in the cyl it will start right away. does it make any difference where the primer ball is located? i pulled one of the spark plugs and it was wet with fuel so i think the gas it getting to the engine. please help.

    Pull the primer bulb off you may be flooding it. the primer everyone is using has small lines going to the carbs when you pump the primer button it squirts a SMALL amount of gas in the carbs.
