Hey, they want free advice, that's what they get. That's what I've fixed in numerousJohnson /evinrude small outboards with the same issue, as long as I've been working on outboards. Not your issue, tough noogies. Wonderful. Take it to a mechanic and quit complainin'. I could care less.
the diaphragm is not internal to the carbs. It's part of the fuel pump which feeds the carbs.
At least that's how my evinrude works. my carbs have floats. But I had the same issue you described and I replaced the fuel pump. It was a $30 fix.
If I were looking to acquire a home defense weapon, I would go with a shotgun. There are some configured with short barrels and larger capacity magazines.
I don't know about the "and works" part. That seems like a whole other question.
If anyone is looking for a nice pop up camper my son is selling a 1999 Starcraft Starlounge. Its in good condition and ready for the camping season. Let me know if you have interest and I can get you pictures.
See in For Sale forum:
Great - even with my limited mechanical skill I think I can handle that test. The serial number on my motor shows 2 different diaphragms - one with an Inline check valve and one with a 90% check valve. I will find out Saturday which one I have. I appreciate the help.
