Ball Problem

Recommended Posts

Guest

Don't be funny. It's the ball on my boat. I have a '98 Tracker with a built in tank. Of course, like all boats it has a ball that needs to be pumped to get the gas going to the motor. Here's the problem, since I got it the gas line looses pressure 2-10 times per trip and the motor cuts out (almost always when going slowly or while idling). Rarely when going full bore. After a few pumps it works fine again. The ball is in good shape, and again, this has been going on since I bought the boat. Any ideas of how to remedy this annoyance? Thanks, I would appreciate any ideas.

I maybe able too help. Here are some things too look at. Two things come to mind right away. One a preasure problem. Your gas hose from the tank- check the seal- This maybe very hard see see with the eye since it sounds like your peasure only drops under low rpm. . Also if you pump your ball , does the ball stay hard ( full of gas) If not you may have a faulty valve in the ball. If you can get to the tank I would replace the hose and ball. Hope this helps If no please reply, we will get this figured out.

I agree that it sounds like a faulty fuel line. does it lose pressure when boat is not running? Do you see gas dripping at either connection?

Dave, you can ask the question in the Equipment forum too, lots of great answers there.

I had the same problem when I first bought my boat five years ago. There must have been a pin-***** leak too small to see in the hose - replaced it & never had the problem again.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
