    Will this work with Fuel Lines (GPR)??

    I have a primer kit where my fuel switch used to be but secured the switch inside my hull. I switched my lines so the carbs are always drawing gas out of the Reserve line. At Carl's suggestion, I ran the primer kit off the regular fuel line, which leaves one fuel line off the fuel switch, and if the fuel switch is turned over to the reserve side, will it be leaking out of the side without a hose?

    I run the primer off the return line down by the carbs.

    Duke taught me this method and I have been using it on carbureted boats with zero problems.

    -Remove and discard the fuel switch and install the primer where the switch used to be.
    -Run the carb feed line off the reserve port on the sending unit and thru the filter, then to the carb inlets.
    -Run a line off the main feed thru another filter.(the filter holds fuel and gives an instant shot when pumping the primer)
    -Then run a hose from the primer filter to the primer line reducer and cap the other end.
    -Run the smaller hoses to the primer pump and carbs.
    -Carb return line to return side of the sending unit. Install reducer jet into metal tube in sender if applicable.

    If you want to go a step further and havent done so, remove the sending unit from the tank. Remove the phillips screw for the big plastic tube and slide it off. Remove the flapped door, and extend the main fuel feed line the same length as the reserve with a piece of hose and a tie strap. I found the old oil feed hose off the bottom of the oil tank fits perfectly. (for those who switched to premix)

    Bypass that POS fuel valve all together. Run return line to carbs and on line to primer, fuel filter on both. If you want to prime the motor low on gas you will have to extend the on line in the tank.

    WFO for this method do I get the primer line reducer when I buy a primer kit? Also for the filter for the primer should I just buy a oem filter or is there a cheaper one I can buy at an auto parts store. Thanx

    reducer comes with the kit

    I use the OEM style filter and just tie strap it to the backside of the other filter

    If the cheap O-Ring in the primer fails you will be introducing air into the feed line. Possible lean seize.

    I might have complicated this one far more than I needed to...I ran my Reserve line from the gas tank to the fuel filter than from the fuel filter to my carbs. I used a reducer and ran one end of my primer hose into the fuel on line.

    Thanks
    TD
