    Primer Lines

    Any issues with only having the primer lines attached to the old accelerator pump ports on the carbs (1 and 3)??

    Anyone see any concern for the #2 not getting gas from the primer for cold starts and #2 starting dry??
    Didn't know if it's better to move it to the old oil injection ports to prime all 3?? (I'm premix)
    Thanks
    Doug

    not sure on location but allot of people prime 1 carb only! i just do them all as a matter of redundancy and my first craft didn't want to fire on 1 vs 3 primers

    with an extra T fitting and a few inches of line you can prime all three.. well worth it..

    # 2 doesn't have the accel pump fitting so I see why he's doing it this way but I don't know if it's a good location?

    Thanks guys! I'm going to leave it as it is on 1/3. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing damage starting #2 dry.

    Choke plates removed.

    Did you have good luck priming to the #1 and #3 acc pump fittings? I have just removed my chokes and was going to plug the holes and use 1 and 3 primer fittings..any other thoughts from other experienced folks??
