oil pump bleeding

Mike (MA) /

Hello,

I'm wondering what's the proper way to bleed the air out of the oil injector pump on my Puch Magnum MKII. There's a small screw on the pump, possibly a bleeder screw...

1) Does the screw just need to be loosened or completely removed?

2) Where will the bled air/oil come out? Screw-hole or pump outlet?

3) Does the pump-outlet tube need to be submersed in oil so as to not suck air back in?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Don,

THanks... I may have accomplished it last night. I connected the pump back up to the intake manifold and ran w/ a tank of 50:1. Unlike a brake system, I've been told that the pump should "probably" purge out any air it has in the line, so I just ran for awhile. If I knew how thick the smoke should be, I could tell if I'm getting double the required oil, but the bike's new to me. After I run it for a little while longer, I'm going to try a suggestion Chris made while back: run for 4 minutes at 3500 rpms and I should get 10cc of oil. I'll have to estimate the 3500 rpms though, as I don't have a tach. But if you have a Puch manual that addresses the oil pump procedures, any info would be helpful. I'm looking into buying my own such manual.

Thanks,

Mike
