Hi no pictures unfortunately,

 

Yes i put the bulb on the outlet to the fuel filter until i drew bubble free fuel. Bubble free fuel being vital. The bulb acts as non-return valve so the fuel will spray out the opposite end and air won't be able to get in. As said before PTFE tape is essential to make sure the bulb is sealed to the outlet of the filter to ensure you can draw a vacuum, thus being able to suck the fuel through the line. After 2 starts the engine worked.

 

Since replacing the fuel filter the engine hasn't cut out once.

A very simple job which could of turned out to be a nightmare without the bulb. That's Indispensable.

Job Complete! :)

 

A big thanks to jeebowhite for his advice.

 

Heres my advice after completing the job:

 

When completing the job do not fill the filter full of fuel. Instead stick to strictly using the hand-held vacuum pump. I used the one from the previous post, however you do need PTFE tape on the hand-held vacuum pump in order to create the seal with the outlet of the filter. Once fuel is being discharged from said pump without signs of any bubbles the car will then start. (Did on my 2nd attempt) Make sure you leave 30 seconds between each start.

 

I tried filling the filter and then starting to no avail. I then used the full filter with the vacuum pump. Again to no avail.

I then emptied the filter and created a vacuum which forced fuel through the outlet of the fuel filter and the car started second time. It started first time, then the engine cut out after 10 seconds. It then started 2nd time.

 

This worked for me, it may not work for you and do take care as the hand-held vacuum pump i used is for low pressure systems.

I did see that but saw that item on here:

That's why i went for it.

Was just thinking would priming it with that or filling it with diesel be better?

Or do both?

Okay i ordered http://www.ebay.co.u...1772984&afsrc=1 for priming of the system.

I have a pipette, so I will use that and i also have diesel spare :).

I'll attempt it tomorrow and report back here!

Cheers.

Hi thanks

I brought a Crosland Premium Fuel Filter.

Looking to replace it now. I've also brought a 6mm fuel primer bulb to bleed the air from the system. I will do this from the outlet of the fuel filter.

However i've been advised to fill the fuel filter with diesel first.

Any advice on how to do this?
