mysteries of outboard motor behavior
Here's a newbie question for y'all:
I have a 9.9 hp Yamaha outboard on my boat. I recently replaced the fuel line with squeeze bulb to resolve a no-start problem. Now it starts every time with the push of a button! Then it runs for 10-20 minutes with no problems, then it dies. At which point I open the locker and squeeze the bulb a few times and then it starts right up again and runs for 10-20 minutes and then dies. Repeat...
So, why does it do this?
