I have recently installed a cartridge type fuel filter/water separator
PETROL FUEL / WATER SEPARATOR ASSY CAV 296 FILTER SUIT MARINE BOAT GARAGE ETC | eBay
but since doing this I am having fuel flow problems to the engine after a few days of non use. It would seem that any fuel in the fuel line between the filter and the primer bulb is running back into the filter. The primer bulb is inline between the filter and engine (fitted in the correct flow direction) and appears not to be able to suck fuel from the filter to re-prime the fuel line to the engine.
I never had any of these problems before fitting the filter and in fact never really had to use the primer bulb at all.
I suppose my question is : should the primer bulb be on the engine side or the tank side of the filter? or should it matter? Anything else to look out for?
