    What to use to kill honeysuckle?

    Don't bother with round up, most stuff I've ever used with round up is back in 4 to 6 months. If you got some thing green to kill get some Crossbow. Just don't spray it where it can eventually get to tree roots or any other plants you like.

    Fram that didn't prime on its own [anecdote]

    The oil pump was air locked. A good rule is never let the oil pump see air on both sides. Drain slump, put oil plug in, and refill.... before you change the filter. Some cars, motorcycles, ATVs are just that way.
