Primer Bulb Goes soft whats the problem

5 posts in this topic

I have a 07 90 hp suzuki and while fishing the other day on the croix the motor died. I couldnt figure out what the problem was until i checked the primer bulb, it was soft but not collapsed. I primed the ball until it was hard again and 10 minutes later it was soft and i ran the motor the rest of the day and it did not stall again. I think i have an air leak somewhere because i see no gas leaks anywhere. what is the problem and am i going to ruin anything by taking it out for opener and not have it looked at right away?

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

How is the hose inside the tank. Check there also. Hoses do go bad also.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. If my motor is shut off for more than an hour the primer bulb tends to lose pressure but only over a length of time. Keep an eye on it and you should be fine. Check all connections and hoses...replacing those parts is a cheap and easy fix. Good luck out there.

I had similar problem and eventually it was determined that the voltage regulator controlling the fuel pump was bad which caused the same problem you are reporting. Good Luck

had the same problem with a smaller 8 hp, turn out to be the fuel line connector on the motor where the gas line connects. not sure if yours has the same type connect, mind was the same style as a air hose.
