    Got the leak fixed and started pumping the primer. After about 75 to 100 a sound started every time I pump it that sounds almost like letting the air out of a balloon very slowly to annoy someone. Couldn't find exactly where it was coming from but sounded like somewhere between the fuel heater and injection pump. Does this mean that it is primed or what?

    Can't say that I've ever heard that noise before. But my guess is it's primed as that would noise would mean to me that pressure is trying to escape just as it would from a balloon like you described

    Not exactly what the noise is just close to the sound, best description I could think of
    I'm gonna try to start it tomorrow and see what happens
