ok good info, iirc it could have been primer bulbs in general and people were having issues so they got a bad rap for just being that part type.Nope. I use 4 zipties on them, one on each end of the bulb and one on each fuel line. I have had them on all my nitros for many years without issue. Well, once there was fuel in one when I put it on the shelf for months, then it turned into gel and I had to take it apart and rinse it out. Other than that, no issues. Just easy priming without blowing into pressure lines or turning a cold engine over needlessly.
They are very soft though, so you have to be mindful where you put it so it doesn't get poked/punctured/tore by something.
OFNA had one that was a filter and primer. Those tended to leak from what I read. never had one.
rerouted the fuel line last night as close to what you have as i could.
so much happier that the line/filter isnt right up against that engine. might have been a non-issue, but for that "may be an issue" part I'm glad it is out of the equation.
thanks for all the tips and tricks btw!
wanting to wait for this spring when it warms up before running this truck, dont know why but I'm a bit more skeptical (i guess is the word) on running this one in the colder months, i know its not any more fragile than the MGT's but have a harder time talking myself into bringing this one out in the colder/nastier weather.
