has been installed since June and everything has worked perfectly this year. It's hard to argue with long term success, but knowing is better.
I installed the squeeze bulb in a parallel circuit with isolating valves as read the warnings on CF. 6 years later it seems as good as new. It's been a godsend. If I did the fuel plumbing
over again I'd just use a 3-5 psi 12v fuel pump
, then you have a backup for the mechanical lift pump
We use a primer bulb to pre-prime the engine oil
pump/main bearings before starting the motor
& that seems to be lasting ok as well
They were el cheapo bulbs off Aliexpress too.
