Bulb keeps going soft?

Question

Guest

I have a 97 Force 75 that dies on me every so often,maybee three times a day.I noticed that the bulb is soft when this happens.All I have to do is pump up the bulb and the motor runs fine again.The motor runs just like brand new the rest of the time.Any one have any idea what could be causeing this.It is not the vent on the tank,I checked it,and there is no kink in the fuel line nor can I find a hole in the line.

You might have to replace the bulb, sometimes they will not seal correctly internally and let pressure go back.
Also it could be the connector to motor, I have a Mariner 30hp and if I don't leave the connector in a particular position, it will do same as yours.
I am just too lazy to replace it rolleyes.gif so I strapped it in position. No more problems...D)

Hey fishhead, I had the same problem. Cured it by changing the connector from the fuel line to the motor. Seems it was old and just didn't seal right anymore.

Thanx guys I'll try that.It doesn't really bother me to pump up the bulb once and a while but it would be wise to have things working properly and not let things get out of hand where you get stuck out on the water.

Ha, Ha, Ha D-MAN,

Be careful with that Viagra in the fuel though. You'll never get the motor to idle down again.

Maybe I should add some to my leeches.

Borch,
DO NOT add Viagra to your leeches. They won't have the curvy wiggle anymore and you'll end up fishing with a black stick for bait........ wink.gif

You might be right. I think I'll scrounge up some prozac instead. Happy active leaches would be good right? wink.gif

Man, this fishing stuff is getting too carried away. Now everytime I get in the boat I got Electronics which include Fishfinder unit, GPS unit, Cell phone, maybe a 2 way radio....I walk like a cop with all that stuff hanging from pants. Plus I have at least 2 or 3 tackle boxes, rods, lifejackets, batteries, nets, maps, bait, etc.....I don't need a 18' boat, I need an aircraft carrier.

Now you guys tell me I have to bring the med kit to help my bait ?

By the way is there any medicine that helps revive minnows ??? I tried mouth to mouth but it doesn't work (they try to stick tongue in also... grin.gif )....If I have to carry all these drugs as might as well find something for the poor minnows..... grin.gif

Have a good day.

Val

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
