installed primer bulb

If my '04 660 sat for longer than a few days between start-ups, I'd have to crank on it forever until it started. I read on here about people installing primer bulbs so I though I'd try it out. Works nicely. I can reach behind the passenger seat wihtout removing it to pump it up. Anyhoos, thought i'd post a pic in case anybody needed a visual...I know it helps me.
From tank to primer bulb to fuel filter...

Great and simple idea. I opted to swap out my black fuel lines for clear in order to check the status of fuel delivery while cranking. Where did you find your primer bulb....probably a marine supply shop or the like I suppose?

I would "assume" you would use 5/16" for the clear fuel line. You may not "need" the clear line...you can feel the bulb get firm once the line is primed. What the heck, give it a shot.

I would say so. Be sure to read the label on the clear tubing. Not all tubing is rated for fuel/other chemicals. If the tubing isn't rated, it will stiffen and yellow.

yes it is 5/16. if you ask for clear fuel line. then they should give you the correct line. I think it has ether in it to keep it flexable.

07 660 camo,18g greeseless,purple spring,dynatek,rt2500 winch,26" terra tires,speaker bar,seizmik center console and hid conversion lights.

I used the existing line that went from the tank to the fuel filter to go from bulb to fuel filter. I purchased another 2 feet to go from tank to bulb. You want to make sure you don't have any kinks.

5' of fuel line should be more than enough to plumb everything and have some left over for the toolbox.
