Hello and Welcome.

My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise.

If you are not getting diesel up with the primer - then either there is non in the tank - or that primer has failed. They do fail... so it that case - you can try another to test - but it usually means its failed.. Its causing it to suck air not fuel and it will not start.

I would suggest to renew the fuel filter at the same time as renewing the bleed pump / primer - and then from what you have said, all should be well again.

Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this.. I will be only on a little tomorrow due to other commitments but will always get back to you if needed.

~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that .

.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --

Best Rgds, MIKE
