thanks , i have replaced both fuel filters and both air filters a couple of months ago and put a new bosch hand primer on her as the old one was leeking bad when i went to prime it after replacing the two fuel filters i will undo the bolt on banjo ( is this the one directly under lift pump?)
i just finished cleaning out that little plastic filter , it was chocker block full of metal shavings looked like it was from someone drilling , the shorty has a long range tank in it may be from when the tank was made!!.may not have been cleaned out properly from new ?. thanks Landy & Wish i Had Coils for your helpfull information, Cheers Bose'o'
