My outboard won't start now...
The NS5B that came with my 192 ran great when I started it the first time, but no water was coming out of the water output, so I ordered a water pump kit, installed it, and started it again but this time it ran like crap so I shut it off right away. I looked in the fuel tank that came with it, RED GAS! It was full of rust, so I got a new tank, new gas, and cleaned out the carb but now when I try and start it I get nothing, and fuel is pouring out the bottom end, and the primer bulb will not firm up, it firmed up within 3 pumps before, but now will not at all.
One thing I noticed was where the fuel enters the carb, a little box attached to the carb, there is a diaphram that appears to be leaky, is this what holds pressure? Is fuel just pouring past this and through the carb? I'm an auto tech so I'm mechanically inclined, but I know squat about 2 stroke engines.
Either I fix this by Sunday or I buy a nice 4 stroke...
