Kicker not getting gas


Scott

Question

This weekend I started having a problem with my kicker motor killing because it's not getting gas. I can get the ball tight, but after a couple of minutes I lose the pressure. There's a T in the main gas line so both my main motor and my kicker are being fed off of the same main line. I'm having no problem with my main motor so I'm guessing that I should replace the ball and/or the gas line going to the kicker.
Does this sound correct, and any other things I may need to replace? The kicker is a 2000 9.9 Evinrude 4 stroke.

Thanks!

That would be the cheapest place to start. There are little spring loaded balls that check the gas flow on either side of the bulb to keep the gas flowing and not backflowing, my guess is one is sticking.

Just a thought but is there a flow valve at that T? Wouldn't be a bad idea to install one. The above reply makes sense as well.

Do you have a plain T in the gas line? I would guess that would be the problem. Improper flow.

I have a 3 way T valve I installed off the main gas line. The valve controls the flow of fuel to each motor, and to use the kicker I have to switch the valve over. If I didn't have the 3-way valve I would starve the fuel from either the kicker or the main motor.

Thanks for the ideas! It had been working fine up until last weekend, so just to be safe I'll replace the 3 way T valve and the ball.

Thanks again for the help!

Scott,

What CD posted is the right thing to do... what happens is that when you run the big motor the fuel pump pulls all the fuel from the line going to the kicker and then starts pulling from the tank... leaving you with air in the kicker's fuel line... the best thing to do would be to put a valve in it (replace your t with one that has a valve), or really go all out and put in a dedicated fuel pickup in your tank... which is a fair amount of work..

good luck!

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
