Mantis Tiller primer bulb problem

air_raider(z7 sc)April 15, 2010

Actually it's more than just the primer.I replaced the bulb and fuel filter and the other tubes fell apart during assembly. I removed all the tubes without paying attention to where they lived. I knew I messed up immediately.

Now I need to know if the tube to the primer bulb needs to be deep in the gas or just inside the tank. Where does the check valve go? Also, right now when I push the primer bulb it just stays pushed in.The engine is a SV-4B1E.

Any help at all will be appreciated.

Get the number off the carb. probably Zama? go to Zamacarb.com should show you diagram of your fuel system. If not goggle how do I change the Fuel lines on my mantis tiller should come up with something?

Go to mantis site sent an email and ask Mantis people. Or call the number, let them tell you what engine and model you have and let them point you to the right manual. They have manuals for all the models, problem is they change to 4 or 5 different engines through out the years and you cannot take for granted.

Thanks for all the help. After googling for information these past years, it never occured to me there could be a human out there to call. But, I did and all is well.

Still having some priming trouble but am confident all lines are in place. Will certainly resolve that soon.
Thanks
