Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
When you say it's filling with fuel, is the engine actually locking up due to a hydrolocked cylinder that is full of fuel?
Is there a story to this engine? When did it last start correctly? Have you ever personally seen it start correctly?
Is there a primer bulb installed anyplace on the boat between the fuel tank and engine?
Also, I did try to accept your request for phone service. The system says your payment did not go through to authorize the phone call. Did you want to get that squared away with customer service, or did you want to stay online?
Are you still with me Blake?
There is not supposed to be a bulb on that engine, and that might be causing the issue. Remote it and retest, and let me know if you stop getting fuel in the cylinders.
There is a vacuum line that runs between the fuel supply module and the intake manifold. Remove that line, cycle the key from OFF to RUN a few times. Is there any fuel coming out of that line or is it dry?
No that wouldn't be it. The next step is to do a compression test and see if the cylinders have any compression or not. Do that next and let me know what you get for results.
What are the actual numbers?
