  Atomic 4 fuel manual primer (PLogan)
Posted: 8:22:31 pm on 4/28/2017 Modified: Never
 
My first spring on my C&C 27 coming up - Do I need to prime the fuel flow into the carb for the first start - there seems to be a Hand primer on the engine for the fuel so just wondering how to use this for the first start of the season.  I know the manual suggests to "Fill fuel pump bowl using the hand primer on the fuel pump" but when do I know its primed, how many pumps, etc...

ThanksPeter Logan

Hi,
   You will feel it easily ( after maybe 4-5 strokes , it kinds of stop moving. I do it only when I empty the bowl to remove sediments and look for water ( no more water after I've installed a Racor as the first inline filter.
If you remove the bowl make sure the cork/rubber bowl gasket is tight otherwise an air leak can prevent it from starting..
