Put a can Sea Foam in the fuel tank and add a spin on fuel filter.

Install a large spin-on fuel filter and start using Sea Foam and the tank will clean its self. Plus you will have water protection for our ethanol fuel.

I pulled my tank drained and cleaned it, I also installed fuel filter/water separator. When I went to prime it with the bulb it wasn't strong enough to pull fuel through the filter.
Is this normal or have I done something wrong?

double check all connections for a air leak. it should prime. is the bulb between the tank and filter or between the filter and engine? i think it should be between filter and engine. it's raining pretty good, so i can't go check mine. anyone else know?

It's in between tank and filter, there no leaks . I hook it back up with out filter and it worked perfectly.

I always fill my fuel/water separator up with fuel before putting it on. Primes easier.
