Here we go - OB cranks up first bump, idles fine. Untie fromthe dock and I am off, no waking across the lake, to perform a full load test. Get out of the no wake zone and give it some gas. Boat umps out of the water and goes. Goes for only a few yards before it cuts out. Turn the key, first bump, and the ob starts abck up. Give it gas to go and it dies down.
Here is what I notice: I am losing pressure in my fuel line at the primer bulb. If I turn the ob over and jog around while primering the bulb the ob runs like a top. I stop primering the bulb and she dies.
- Starting at the fuel cell - bad o-ring in the hose valve? I would ask about the fuel pick-up in the tank, but when primering the bulb I get pressure with only a few pumps.
- Air leaking into the assembly at the bulb?
Any help is much apprecaited!!!!
