    bleeding air from oil line

    I have a 2000 GTX. I need to know how to bleed the air from the oil line.

    I tried to let it ooze into the hull - nope
    I tried to use a vacum pump from the pum end of the hoze - nope
    I tried to put pressure into the tank at the cap - nope

    I could move the air bubble in the line but not get rid of it. It would either get stuck in the line or4 at the elbow at the bottom of the oil tank.

    any ideas

    I thnik there is a bleed screw on the oil pump under where the line attatched to it. If you open up that screw and let it bleed into a cup or rag you should be good.

    Once you have used the bleed screw start the ski and move the oil pump linkage all the way open. Just the oil pump not the throttle. This will let the air bubbles pass through with no problem.

    Ditto. Doing it at idle holding the pump wide open will do no damage at all. Sounds like you've done this once or twice David?
