Bulb keeps going soft?

10 posts in this topic

I have a 97 Force 75 that dies on me every so often,maybee three times a day.I noticed that the bulb is soft when this happens.All I have to do is pump up the bulb and the motor runs fine again.The motor runs just like brand new the rest of the time.Any one have any idea what could be causeing this.It is not the vent on the tank,I checked it,and there is no kink in the fuel line nor can I find a hole in the line.

You might have to replace the bulb, sometimes they will not seal correctly internally and let pressure go back.
Also it could be the connector to motor, I have a Mariner 30hp and if I don't leave the connector in a particular position, it will do same as yours.
I am just too lazy to replace it rolleyes.gif so I strapped it in position. No more problems...D)

Hey fishhead, I had the same problem. Cured it by changing the connector from the fuel line to the motor. Seems it was old and just didn't seal right anymore.

Thanx guys I'll try that.It doesn't really bother me to pump up the bulb once and a while but it would be wise to have things working properly and not let things get out of hand where you get stuck out on the water.

Ha, Ha, Ha D-MAN,

Be careful with that Viagra in the fuel though. You'll never get the motor to idle down again.

Maybe I should add some to my leeches.

Borch,
DO NOT add Viagra to your leeches. They won't have the curvy wiggle anymore and you'll end up fishing with a black stick for bait........ wink.gif

You might be right. I think I'll scrounge up some prozac instead. Happy active leaches would be good right? wink.gif

Man, this fishing stuff is getting too carried away. Now everytime I get in the boat I got Electronics which include Fishfinder unit, GPS unit, Cell phone, maybe a 2 way radio....I walk like a cop with all that stuff hanging from pants. Plus I have at least 2 or 3 tackle boxes, rods, lifejackets, batteries, nets, maps, bait, etc.....I don't need a 18' boat, I need an aircraft carrier.

Now you guys tell me I have to bring the med kit to help my bait ?

By the way is there any medicine that helps revive minnows ??? I tried mouth to mouth but it doesn't work (they try to stick tongue in also... grin.gif )....If I have to carry all these drugs as might as well find something for the poor minnows..... grin.gif

Have a good day.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
