Hi Guys

I had an issue yesterday where fuel was squirting out of 2 of the injector run off pipes and the hand primer bulb had inflated to the size of a small football. Engine was running fine and still does so don't think its a blocked injector have also checked the non return valve at the end of the fuel run off pipes and that fine.

Apart from the bulb now looking like a shriveled raisin the engine starts and runs fine but i don't want to leave it long.

Going to take a look later but is there anything I should be looking out for other than the usual kinked pipe etc? anyone had any issues with airlocks in the system that could cause this?

Thanks All
