2008 Yamaha 75 4 stroke primer bulb

7 posts in this topic

I was sent a new one by my dealer and this one does it too. It sucks in when motor is opened up going across a lake and will start chugging because of no fuel. Tank is full!

Any one know of what is going on? Should I get a primer bulb for a larger hp motor to fix this? Gas valve not open some place or air valve to check on boat?

I have a 1725 2008 lund pro guide. Thanks,

Its unable to vent or there is a restriction in the line before the bulb. The pick up in the tank may be the culprit.

It could be a sticky anti-siphon valve in the elbow in the fuel tank as well.

If this is a new motor / boat I'd take it back to the dealer and let them sort it out though...

I had the same problem with my boat, but my boat is a 1987 Bass Tracker with a 1987 Mercury 70 on it. But the problem I had was that the fuel line did not have a constant vaccum between the tank and the motor. I found out that my fitting from my gas tank was defective, so I replaced my fuel line and updated my gas tank with a new mental fitting rather than the old plastic/rubber fitting. But after I did that, my motor runs great and I no longer have that problem. Hope this helps.

bobbyG how fast does your 1725 run with that 75 on it? It was a toss-up between the 1725 and G3 172 when I went to buying my new boat. I went with the G3 and saved about 4 grand. So I'm kinda curious as to which one performs better. Thanks

I get in the high 30's mph depending on wind and load. Mid 30's with a guy or two and live boxes full of h2o. I have my rig packed with coats life jackets anchors etc for guiding so I have no idea on how much weight I am carrying.

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
