I did not have to prime our Racor Filter when I installed it.
I change our filter at the begining of each season and always carry a spare in case of an emergency. A gauge is always useful but, that's up to you.
You could make up your own polishing filter kit but, buying it from Don Moyer will save you the aggreviation.
I also highly recommend making the investment in Don Moyer's Maintenance and Overhaul Manual for the Atomic 4...it's the Atomic 4 bible.
If you'd like to see pictures of our Atomic 4 set up, here is the link:
I also recommend that you join the Atomic 4 Discussion List on Sailnet.com. It's free and very active with a lot of experienced A4 owners and experts there.
