primer gets stuck
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 11 months ago.

Primer is sticking because there is a restriction or blockage before the primer! Check the line from the tank, and all the fittings and filters before the primer. Primer is sucking a vacuum and collapses

I see question is still open, did you find problem before the primer?
