it will only star with priming pump then its ok providing you start it before a hour passes then you have to use the hand pump again, once started it runs perfect i have noticed there seems to be a lot of air in the clear pip from the hand pump until it goes firm then it will start very frustrating when its raining early in the morning before going to work.

Looks like you have an air leak in the system causing run back ,may only be slight a pin hole even
