Oil Pump Priming
This priming procedure must be
performed whenever the oil hose
connection between the oil tank and
pump inlet has been disconnected.
1. Clamp the vent line 5 cm from
the oil tank, between the end of
the oil tank vent fitting and the
vent line's pressure relief slit.
2. Start the engine. Allow it to idle
for 10-20 seconds.
3. Remove the vent line clamp. If
the line is bled properly, you should hear a rush of air. If you do not
hear a rush of air, repeat the priming procedure.
