Fuel Primer pumps.

Post by Tim036 » Thu Jun 17, 2010 12:36 pm

I used a Ford one off an Escort (same as Scorpio one) and suddenly the engine died gracefully.

The pump punger was jammed in !

I took of the hose leading to the injector pump and a gushing suction noise occured and the plunger popped back !

A good pumping and all was well again !

Now there is a non return valve in there and a pump ?

What sort of fault causes that ? Or is it sling it and get another job ?

:)
