I believe "priming" the fuel pump simply means turning your key to the on position for a couple seconds, then back to off, then back to "on" for a couple seconds. You should hear the fuel pump whine...

I think the OJ XMP 310 is the 13 x 11.5 (that's the prop I have), but it is essentially a direct replacement for the stock 13 x 13. The 316 is the 13 x 12 and should give you a little more top speed...

If you have a tapered pylon like my '97 does you will need a boom with a crook in it so that you can connect it lower on the pylon where it is not tapered.

You didn't note how long your HO is, but any ski in that genre in a 69" should provide pretty easy starts and still be fun carving turns. The CoX, Radar Senate, Connelly V would be good choices. That...
