it's a self priming system and shouldn't need priming....however if your making repairs in it and it had water intrusion..then according to the Merc manual...use 30 detergent oil and cycle the rams several times.....then suck the oil out and use either apvd oil or atf.....

Rens

just cycle the drive up and down several times and that will bleed the system of air..you may have to put some oil in after you cycle it a few times..

let us know how it went..
