Would a petrol priming bulb work?

Thank you for that excellent suggestion. I've now done away with my rather Heath-Robinson setup and put in a bulb between the metal fuel line where it enters the engine compartment and the standard fuel pump - it works a treat. I'll probably take it off when I start to use it on the road in the spring, simply because it's something that could go wrong as it's only a cheap rubber component.

Thank you for the conformation. I will try and keep the idea in the memory. Does it require many pumps? I suppose if it has a non return valve and is near to the carbs that would help. Although a 'near to the carbs' position can obviously get hot. Do you have a photo to post? Richard

There you go!

Only needs a few squeezes. I'm sure there must be a non-return valve but I wouldn't think it could be relied upon to make a good enough seal if you were to leave the car for a few weeks.

Friend in the Netherlands leaves his in place all the time and he's never mentioned it leaking, it seems to be a popular fit there.
However I still prefer the electric pump fitted just in front of the furl tank about 5 years ago , although I recently had the fuel hoses to and from it changed, as they were leaking .

Good quality fuel hoses now carry a stamped date on them (like tyres) to indicate their manufacture date. Worth replacing them after 5-7 years with modern petrol usage, Andrea
