QuoteRikugun, since your 3 Visions all filled their carbs with the petcock on prime, it seems safe to assume that behavior is normal. Finding a Vision will not fill on prime is apparently an indication the pump diaphragms are stretched, as mine were.

Quote from: fret not on November 07, 2020, 12:46:01 AM"it will fit nicely in the V" IF you don't have carburetors. I have been poking about fitting carbs into that "V of the engine" and I find there is significantly less room for ANYTHING between the cylinders and heads. Try to remember that parts sometimes need to be removed or adjusted, so access is rather important. The fewer obstacles you set for yourself the easier Life will be.
