Primer bulb

Hi all,
I have a 1993 Yamaha 85 AET 2 stroke. I need to purchase a replacement primer bulb to go between the Clearvue and the engine, cos the exisiting one weeps slightly if you flex it in one partcular direction. Unfortunately I neglected to check the diameter of the fuel hose before leaving the boat behind in Caernarfon. Do you think the hose is likely to be 8mm or 6mm? Would it even be possible to run this engine on 6mm hose (it has a prodigious thirst)?

Cheers

3/8" hose (and bulb) is what you need.

That's the one, but the Quicksilver 3/8 one is a better option. Give Turbodiesel a bell.
