HOW TO CHANGE THE PRIMER VALVE O-RINGS STEP 1
When performing any inspection or maintenance on the powerplant, propeller or that requires turning on the master switch, or pulling the propeller through by hand; treat the propeller as if the ignition switch were on. DO NOT stand, nor allow anyone else to stand, within the arc of the propeller as a loose or broken wire or component malfunction could cause the propeller to rotate.
Turn selector valve OFF.
Unlock and pull primer plunger 1/2 way out.
Hold backside of valve assembly and loosen knurled nut on frontside of valve. BE CAREFUL to not twist or bend small copper lines on backside of valve.
Slide nut 1/2 way down plunger and place a cloth under the plunger. Remove plunger from the frontside of the valve. A small amount of fuel will drip out of the plunger cavity.
Once plunger is out, clean the plunger and remove the o-rings on the end of the plunger.
Install the correct fuel resistance o-rings. See “ Fuel Injection and Primer System Parts ” under Aircraft Parts By Category on our website to purchase the Primer Seal Kit which includes two MS29513-012 O-Rings and one lube capsule.
Lubricate the o-rings and plunger.
Reinstall the plunger and tighten the knurled nut.
Turn ON the fuel selector valve. Exercise the primer two or three times to fill the plunger cavity with fuel. Check for leaks around the knurled nut.
