Hi Moe, my name is Jason.

What is the model number of the engine you are working on?

Will the engine continue to idle if you pump the primer bulb over and over, and continiously force fuel to the engine?

I need the actual model number on the engine. Yamaha Makes EFI 4 stroke, EFI 2 strokes, Carb 2 strokes, DFI/HPDI 2 strokes. I would need to know exactly what you have.
