    Default Diesel priming bulb / pump dti

    Just been to the carshop and bought an inline diesel priming bulb, like what you find on other makes, Rover diesels for example, however my experience of other makes is that their priming bulbs are fitted before the filter and used to provide pressure to the fuel system and fill up the filter,

    don't think it will work that way on the DTi for some reason, or it would have one fitted as standard,

    I know that the recommended sealey pump needs to go on the return to the tank, so it basically pulls the fuel around the system and dumps it back into the tank, but it is not designed to be left in place all the time,

    I want to leave it in place all the time, I do not use my car every day, and it can sometimes be left for a few days without being started, it has the fuel draining back into the tank problem, I have changed the injector leak off pipes but it hasn't done the trick, I haven't the funds for the injector seals to be changed just yet, and do not want to scrap my pump by priming it with the key, whcih I am currently doing,

    Has anyone fitted a retro priming bulb to the DTi, where did you put it to get the best result and have you any pics of it fitted,

    When you did the leakoff pipes did you replace the t joints ? Not sure about the priming pump but someone else might have an opinion

    no didn't change the t peices, shop didn't have any to fit, didn't go to stealers, I have had to use braided fuel pipe as they didn't have the all rubber pipe one small enough, didn't cost a lot only a fiver,

    do vauxhall sell the t pieces and the pipe in a set, or can the pieces be bought on their own, or has anyone got an ebay link to t pieces that will do....?

    T joints can be bought from vx and this could be your problem as they crack letting in air

    fingers crossed didn't know they could crack, will call stealers in the morning,

    any ideas on the priming bulb anyone, I will need to put it some where to prime the system when I have taken the t-pieces off.

    did you change the long pipe that runs up from the pump mate? or just the 4 pipes into the Ts? i recently did mine on my vec B DTI and didnt change the long one, changed that and it now starts fine

    I didn't , have ordered some new black silcon 4mm hose off ebay to do them all again, the hose is 4mm i.d, and the t pieces i've seen are 4 mm also,

    would any one recommed using the 5 mm t's, instead of the 4mm t's, to get a snugger fit on the pipe,
