Fuel Line Issues

5 posts in this topic

I had this posted in another forum. I think this is where it should be. This Spring I placed an in-line fuel filter between the bulb and the engine intake. Up to this week, I could see fuel in the filter. Monday, I went to check the boat and no fuel visible. So I pumped it up. Filled up. then the fuel drained back into the under-floor tank. Replaced the bulb with a backup from the Rogers store. Same thing happened. Is there something wrong here? So far I have tried 2 new bulbs - same result. Am I concerned for no reason? If something is wrong here, any suggestions as to how to correct it.

It almost sounds like a air leak somewhere, but I'm kind of surprised that your primer bulb wouldn't keep the gas from back flowing. I guess it's possible that you got 2 primer bulbs, but somewhat rare.

Does your motor run?

Marine_man thank for the advice. Right on. I inspected the fuel line and found a couple of suspicious cracks/slices in it. Replaced, refitted, bled the line. All is now well. Runs like a top. Again thanks.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
