    I think i may have a bad pump.....I followed all the instructions bernie, even with a drill no oil is coming out of the pump. After i purged the main supply line. Do i need to prime it below the outlet of the tank????

    You need to purge the air out of the oil line feeding the pump, so the pump is not trying to pump air.

    The pump should be below the level of the oil tank, so gravity is feeding oil into the pump.

    Be sure the drill is spinning the pump in the correct direction.

    Its a slow process .It isn't like your garden hose .Purge it to the pump itself .Put the pump lever to full position and work drill.(anticlockwise )purge the longest line first and work back .When your done put about 1/4 cup of oil down each venturi and open throttle to let it get in your engine .When starting make sure you're outside or you may get smoked out .I run a small amount of oil in my first tank .Be sure not to beat up with 2 people (or hot day)on it though as they will run a little lean as the oil takes place of some fuel delivered .
