Question about Boating
My engine won't stay running. It will start everytime I spray some starting fluid into the choke, but will quit as soon as that fluid is burned off. This is my first 2 stroke engine, and don't know if has gunk in the lines or a bad pump.
There may be a screen in the tank pickup. Since you are new to 2 cycles- swish the tank back and forth before using it to remix the oil. You can open the fuel pump and see if it has something in it. If you have the motor connected to the fuel line when the fuel pump is off you can blow through the fuel line to see if it is clear. Remember there are check balls in the connectors and you need to have the hoses connected to get flow.
