Re: Yanmar 2gm2f no start after fueling

You may have developed an air leak in the fuel line somewhere. The crappy plastic tank elbow developed a hairline crack in my boat that drove me nuts until I found it. Vents get clogged by insects, usually spiders making webs in there. It's a good idea to plug them with a rag or tape over in the off season. It takes a LOT of pumping with that little lever, just keep pumping. On my 3GM there is also a second bleeder on the injector pump which is not obvious. The 2GM is probably the same.
