Lauralee: Here''''s your fix.

Oh yeah. Sometimes it doesn''t take on the first try. Go back, repump, rebleed (no air bubbles, clear diesel running out of the screws) and do it again. Seems as though I''ve had to try it up to three times in the past to get it to take. Sitting over the winter, the fuel must drain to low points somewhat, introducing air into the system. The trick is clear fuel only from the bleed screws. Another thing I do is NEVER leave the dock, anchor, or mooring without running the engine up for at least 3 or 4 minutes - just in case. It only happened once that it cut out, but there were 25 or 30 Hinckleys all around me in SW Harbor and it was blowing. Bad scene, but foot pump and bleed screws fixed it in record time. KW
