"03 Honda Rancher Fuel Primer

Recommended Posts

Having an issue with the primer on my Rancher. Last year (my first year with this machine) I had to use the primer knob only when it got a bit cold (and it did not get a bit cold very often last winter) and I remember that the plunger stroke was not very long (half inch at best). Now it is chilly and the stroke is almost not there (1/8 at most. Anyone had an issue with this before? Solutions?

The primer is basically a plunger that pumps gas. Its held in by 2 small phillips screws. I haven't ever had one out on a Rancher but I assume its similar to others. It normally has a seal on the plunger. The bore that it moves in may have some corrosion in it from moisture in the gas that sat for a while. Try turning the knob as you push and pull on it. If it doesnt free up, I'd say turn off the fuel then remove it and clean the bore it is in and put some lubricant on the seal. Reinstall it and give it a try. There isnt a lot that can go wrong with them.

Thanks Macgyver, I plan on tearing into it this weekend. I thought it would be more diffcult than that.
