would be a good idea to check engine oil pressure also.

fuel pressure is a consideration~

is the fuel you're looking at a "sight glass", is it supposed to do that? is it showing the flow or some freaky 'reservoir'--filter? curious.~


Not sure why he stated there is a fuel filter on top of the motor. But no there is no sight glass you cant see fuel unless you take the cap off. Not sure why he is asking a question and not providing any info back?


Still got air in the fuel system. Find bleader screws and get air out. Can't find screws then roll engine over with fuel filter slightly loose till fuel comes out. Some systems u have to crack open return line fitting. Just a few air bubbles is all it takes.


In my experience with them they wont start if they have air in the fuel system. After changing the fuel filters you have to key it on about ten times to purge air. They never run when they have air.
