Re: Outboard Issues
Wow, this sounds familiar, including taking it back to the dealer. I finally solved my problem by replacing all the lines, the bulb, the filter and fittings. When I say replacing the lines this including the one inside the fuel tank, the lines & clamps on the motor and all the hard connections at the motor and tank.
I have not had a problem since, but I still find myself squeezing the bulb in those places where you dread to have the motor die.
I have a Tohatsu 6 hp, which I believe is the same motor.
