Fuel primer bulbs - how many types

I have a Ribcraft 5.8 with factory fitted Yamaha 100. It has had occasional fuel starvation problems, and from looking through the forums, and eliminating several causes, it looks like I'll try a new fuel primer bulb.

Problem is that the RIB is currently in remote Scotland, and I want to buy the parts here.

My question is - are they standard for a particular engine? Do they vary by internal diameter? How does it all work?

Regards,

Tim

Suggest you get one from Yamaha

Hi Tim,

I suggest you get one from your yamaha dealer.

I had fuel starvation problems that were eventually tracked down to a fuel bulb (non Quicksilver) I bought from a chandlery.

Yamaha UK have a couple of options -

for 7mm diameter 6Y1-24360-52-00 15.49
for 8mm diameter 6Y2-24360-52-00 15.49

Should I buy the 7mm or 8mm? Anyone know for sure?

Thanks in eager anticipation.....

Tim

Tempo makes OK fuel tanks, but pretty much everything else I've used from them is garbage.

I bought a new complete fuel line for my SIB/Honda 40 prior to selling it; ended up buying the complete Tempo assembly (remarkable, the chandler had it in stock.)

Complete experience:

Connected the line to the tank. Line fell off. Reconnected. Fell of again. Made sure that the connector was fully engaged, and the locking collar was extended. Fuel line fell off. Removed Tempo connector, and replaced with the old Honda connector from the old fuel line. Problem fixed.

Connected fuel line to motor. Dry break spring loaded pin was enough to push the connector off. Investigated more fully; sheet metal locking spring thingie did not extend far enough into the pin to engage reliably. Filed a slight indentation into the spring to get more bearing surface. Problem mostly fixed. Couldn't swap parts on this one because that connector was the one that failed.

Tried priming motor. Fuel bulb seemed to pump as it was squeezed, but stayed collapsed. Finally re-expanded after a minute or so. Squeezed again, and it stayed collapsed. Removed bulb from the line (disconnecting the ends won't work because of the dry break features at both ends), and checked out the bulb on its own. Squeeze; stays deflated. The thing out of the blister pack wouldn't even pump air, much less gas. Replaced bulb with the old original Honda bulb, and everything was fine.

Last step was to make a mental note not to buy anything from Tempo again.

Tempo was what I had - the valves inside the bulb jam.

The only reason one was fitted is that these are all the local chandlerys sell.

Go for Yamaha or Quicksilver or whatever brand your engine is.
