Lauralee: Here''''s your fix.
Still too hard. I use a 3 gal. Tempo tank with the outboard engine connector cut off. I remove the inlet hose to the Racor filter and clamp on the tank hose. A few squeezes of the hose bulb and she starts right up, no bleeding necessary. Now reconnect the fuel line to the Racor and she will start and run. If you have locker space the Tempo is nice insurance if(when) you have fuel problems.
