What are the defects?

The connection to the primer bulb check valve may have the clamp incorrectly installed. This may cause a bunching or pinching of the material under the clamp, resulting in a leak path for air to enter the fuel system, leading to a lean fuel condition. The leak path may also create a fuel leak when the fuel bulb is used for priming the engine fuel system.

What are the hazards?

Leaking fuel presents a fire hazard.
