      Comments about West Marine EPA-Approved Primer Bulb, 5/16" Hose:

      I bought this to replace my functional but older primer bulb after replacing my fuel tank, all of my hoses and fuel filter. After installing it I kept losing the prime in the bulb. It struggled to get a prime, but eventually It was firm, but as I listened to the bulb I could hear air entering through the factory sealed ends. After trying to tighten the hose clamps I switched back to my old bulb. Not a problem. This bulb is junk!

      Comments about West Marine EPA-Approved Primer Bulb, 5/16" Hose:

      This primer bulb replaced the one on a portable tank that I use to winterize the I/O on my 22ft boat. It fits well with the existing 5/16" ID hose, and has an arrow to indicate direction of flow. Bulb is flexible and primes well with sufficient flow. No leaks. Hose barbs are plastic, so you need to be careful not to break them while inserting into the fuel hose. If you pre-wet ends with gas, they will slide on more easily. Hose clamps are not included. Would have received 5 stars IF clamps included, and hose barbs made of brass.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Item was IN-STOCK in my local West Marine store along with bulbs to fit two other size fuel hoses.
