I got mine up and running today. Put the 1/8" Tygon Tubing I picked up last week. Ran a solid piece from the tank to the pump with a tyrap at each connection. Ran a solid piece from the pump to the outlet pipe with a tyrap at each connection. Put in some Lionel fluid primed it and all was good. Then the fluid stopped. Thought maybe the hose was kinked. No there was a small piece of like plastic crumb stuck in the line at the outlet pipe. Took the hose off and flushed the lines. There must have been little bits of like plastic crumb like flash in the tank. Think I have it all flushed out. Working good now and should not have any more leaks.
