I guess you never spoke with a mechanic, as there is a much easier way and cheaper and less complicated, one just needs bleeder screw, and hand vaccum pump down stream to accomplish all that you have show.

There is also something else sailors should be aware of is that there is out there diesel fuel with fish oil in it, which has been the cause of the last three engines that stop running, which I had to get going. The only thing that put me on to it was the smell, it didn't.
