Fuel priming bulb

Are there any known restrictions where in-line I can place this? I want to mount it in front of the Fuel filter.

Fuel priming bulb

Hi Andy,

Mine is between the filter and engine. That way when you use the bulb it sucks the fuel through the filter.
Good luck.

That's where mine was, but I want to run the tank hose to the fuel filter that's mounted on the Transom back into the hull and then up though a large diameter flexible conduit to the outboard.

Where do you launch from Charlie?

Hi Andy,

Can't see any reason for not doing this. The only thing to do is to try it and see if it works!

My RIB is at Drivers as I have no place to keep it at home. They are a good bunch down there and are always very happy to help.

Charlie
