Re: Yanmar 2gm2f no start after fueling

Thanks for great responses so far. for first one, Fuel tank vent is clogged, Tank cap was loose before you refueled. Now its creating a vacuum; the cap was definitely not loose. but how does vent get clogged, from fuel? (i don't know where it is in any case, looked in filler neck tube but can't see anything). for other ones; i'm not sure where the pick up screen or pump is but will look for it (them). i also thought it may be crud stirred up while filling, so guess i really need to find the pickup pump/screen. to bleed i understand there's a screw or two. do i just open it and listen for air running out or just leave open for a while? sorry, i'm not a mechanic, just starting to learn about the engine.
