I have been timing how long it takes to fill my Holley's fuel bowls after a hot shut down the day before. When I push my fuel bowl priming button I can tell when the bowls get filled by a slight change in the sound of the pump and it usually takes about seven to eight seconds. That means a LOT of fuel gets boiled and evaporated out after a hot shut down.

And with my fuel bowls filled my choke operation has been consistent so the push button switch was a good addition. It was the nearly empty fuel bowls that were allowing my engine to start but quickly die because there wasn't enough fuel in the bowls to keep the engine running long enough for the bowls to get filled.
