Hi

I take it the hose is old,your chandlery shop will have the fuel line.I bought some last year grey in colour may be different colours though, what size hose do you have 3/8 or 5/16.

The priming bulb it's worth getting a bigger rather than smaller same sizes apply

Go to Hyphose in Pompey. You'll get quality gear there: Fuel

Don't by cheap Bulbs, get good quality ones of these too. I use a quicksilver and haven't had any problems.
