This is pretty much an FYI post, as it took me a while to figure this out. This is NOT the procedure in the manual, but works a ton better!

Basically there are TWO places to bleed it, labeled here.


  • First, crack the screw labeled ‘1’ while hammering on the manual little pump handle. Once fuel with no bubbles comes out, crack it tight.
  • Then do the same to the nut labeled ‘2’. This one is not mentioned in the service manual for some reason! Once this is complete, you should be able to start and run the engine fine.
