Had a couple of good tries where it started and ran for 5 seconds or so, but now seems I drained the batteries. Have less than 11v now and cannot start engine anymore and last few attempts did seem weak. Going to get a jump in the morning, top off the fuel tanks, and give it another try. By the way, is it ok to put a little bit of fuel into that bleeder thing? Sorry for the non-tech terms

Hello,
non, tech term, ...........for get it , give me a break on TYPO...........lol

This will go, like I said a stinker to prime, it is a Yanmar engine ,and a bear to prime
