Our F.D. has a brush truck that uses a commercial setup for the water pump. It has a small engine that has the same kind of fuel pump as our prowlers and a fuel tank like a outboard motor on this setup from the manufacture the priming bulb is before the fuel pump. I'll try to get a pic at the station today. We don't use the primer very often due to daily truck checks.
I wouldn't think it would make much difference, one way your pushing the fuel through the entire system and the other your pulling it through the pump & pushing it to the carb. Easy access to the primer would be my biggest concern, where do you plan to mount the bulb?
Just my input.. I would not put it after the pump.. The main point of a primer bulb (like on an outboard) is to supply fuel up to the pressure valve in the fuel pump. When you feel a primer bulb tighten up after a couple pumps it means the fuel has reached the pressure valve, not necessarily the carb. I would imagine that if the bulb is after the pump either you will pump the bulb until tight which may temporarily collapse your fuel line between the bulb and pump, or you will suck it through the pump all the way to the carb and if that happens the bulb will not fully pressurize. It MIGHT flood you out by filling the carb with gas everytime you pump it. I could be wrong because I'm basing this off outboards. I spent 4 years servicing and rigging outboards. Just my 2 cents but I have been wrong once before..maybe..I think...
New to the forum. I have a 2011 700HDX Prowler I cant seem to be able to find the spark plug on it. It wont start and changing the plug is what is suggested.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
I have a 2009 flatbed model that won’t start without starting fluid when it hasn’t been used for a couple days. The fuel pump does its normal thing of coming on for a few seconds when the key is turned on. Replaced the fuel filter with a see through one and it seems like there is a fair amount...
