I have had a problem on my Yamaha 5 hp outboard
. I will start it and it runs for awhile then cuts out. I pump
the bulb from the outside gas tank, start it then nothing. I can try and try, will not start again
I have replaced spark plug
, fuel filter
, one of the fuel
lines in the engine
, pulled and cleaned the Jets and needle. Sprayed the carb with cleaner.
Two things that I am thinking. One that gas is not being pumped to the carborator. If so, then wouldn't me pumping the external bulb between the gas tank and engine
alway me to start the engine again at least until the float chamber has been emptied of gas?
Second, I am not getting a spark to the plug
. Had can I test this? I would think it would be easy.
If it is not getting a spark, possible my red key that goes under the cutoff is worn down, or maybe a malfunction
in the cut off??
These are theories, any suggestions from people with mechanical experience?
Thanks, it has been frustrating.
