Re: Faucet/shower combo

Pulling up on the hose right where it attaches seems to be the answer. I was surprised by how hard I had to pull, but it works.

Re: Is there a speed limit on the Great lakes

Re: Outboard Issue

Lots of good tips here. One other thing you can try is after it starts, see if squeezing the primer bulb keeps it running. If it does you might have a fuel pump problem.
