    Pretty sure that's your issue.

    You can unscrew the handle in place and the replaceable o-rings are on the stem.

    If you don't have a parts book, you need one. You should be able to get any part you need from your local Cat dealer, but you need to have the part number for them because they can't look it up in their computer system more than likely.

    Here's one on Ebay:

    Hi d9gdon,

    The primer pump I put on it is brand new. I did notice when pulling out on handle the action isn’t as smooth as when pushing the handle in.

    A restricted fuel flow will not allow it to prime either though.
