    Primer Question?

    Hello,

    When installing my primer, I tee'd into the feed line after the fuel filter. Should I have rather tee'd into the return line?
    Does it make a difference?

    Thanks.

    Use the return for sure. If anything leaks on the supply side you are asking for trouble. If something leaks on the return line, or the "T" breaks, all that it will do is dump a bunch of fuel in the hull. Dont ask me how I know that either.

    I like to run a longer return line with a loop. put the t for the primer at the bottom of the loop. That way you always have enough gas in the return line to get primed up.

    Always use the return line. If the supply line is used and the primer fails you could get an air leak that might sieze your motor.

    I like Addicted's idea on a little reserve capacity for the primer

    Great suggestion Mike


    I starved a cylinder once installing the primer like you did here. The hole in the tee fitting was to small to feed three carbs at WOT. Change your set up!!

    I will change the primer to tee into the return line asap.
