we could keep the ermintrude running by pumping the primer bulb, but not when under load, fuel problems can take an age to sort

no probs, just let me know, sooner the better as he get busy once the season starts

no idea about your engine but some do have a filter on the fuel pump, maybe worth having a look at that, that's were the non return valve was fitted on our ermintrude, it was only partially opening up and so causing fuel starvation
