Re: Yanmar 2gm2f no start after fueling

Thanks Morgan73. I actually did get the little primer pump going today after turning the crank till the lever felt like it went a little bit further down with a little resitance, and I saw fuel coming from the bleed screw on the pump/filter canister. then I bled the screw further along under it to the pump (?). then i tried to start the engine and actually got a lttle cough before I stopped because the battery was dying (which is on a solar charger but hadn't set the trickle charger for the 2nd batt, nor had the 25 watt light connected to heat the oil sump). however this was THE FIRST TIME i got any sign of life for some time so am very encouraged!!
Will let you know what happens tomorrow.
