    Default "I just purchased a 1991 9.9 G

    "I just purchased a 1991 9.9 Gamefisher motor that will only run with the fuel line removed after the bowl has been filled with fuel. As soon as I put the line back on, when the bowl is running empty, the motor stalls out and it's flooded. I have taken the carb off and cleaned it and the float seems fine. I need help, my son wants to go fishing this weekend."

    "can you turn carb up and blow into fuel line , you should not be able to as the weight of the float should seal the needle valve , another thing is to make sure float is not puntured, put it in a bowl of petrol and check for air bubbles (keep it held under fuel level )after a while skake float and see if fuel has entered"

    "If it passes the "blow" test, you may have a hole in the fuel pump diaphragm. That would put enough fuel in the engine to kill it."
