Hi, john,

I have the same set up, filter tank, before, after pump. remove spring and ceramic, put bowl back on.

start engine, if you see air bubble, tap the filter, and start bleeding. Tapping your trying to move the bubble. but it should fill right up.

the ceramic, for looks, maybe remove the inside cone. so gas goes right up to carb. i like carby,,,

riki,,g'day.

Hi, john,

has anyone brought up, bleeding the line, crack the fitting at inlet of filter,, let a little gas out,but watch the bubble in the bowl, open and close the fitting.

l have done and it works for me. Also without the ceramic element, it should fill up. if not do above.

l think the ceramic has air trapped in it. l have so many inline filters that l leave out the ceramic.

rik

ps. forgot to add,,,this is done with engine running

This my replacment part for tail shaft bearing, going with inner rings, shafts are to soft, only one hard enough is the driven hub.

inner rings will be fitted to shafts, and then if need be ground to fit needle bearing bore.

some inner rings will just need to be fitted to shafts,

the pictures, the first bracket i made was out of cold roll and a bitch to machine, the other is aluminum, made oil holes but i am leaving it to machine shop to finish, need rotating vise.

i will have pictures for each part..

riki,,

decided to finish the part off,,5-4-2012,,i did get it un even, but was winging it, the small end will go down for more oil flow..
