Priming the TUTORO Auto

The TUTORO Auto is a gravity feed system so the oil reservoir needs to be above the nozzle.

BUT the oil delivery tube from the Auto unit to the nozzle can be installed so that it rises above the reservoir before going on down to the nozzle by the chain, once primed the oil will flow without a problem because of the siphon effect.

However you need to get the oil delivery tube filled with oil before this will work so you have two options.

  1.  Install the Auto unit and attach a syringe to the end of the hose or the nozzle and PULL the oil though so it fills the hose right up to the nozzle.
  2.  Temporarily unbolt the Auto reservoir and lift it above the high point in the hose so that gravity can push the oil through
