A couple of weeks ago, I changed the fuel filters and inline oil filter. Afterwards I started it, and let it idle for about 10 min. Shut it down and put it up till the following weekend, when I took it out. Once in the water, we started away from the dock, I noticed it sounded like it was missing. Tried to get it on plane and it sputtered and died, then would not re-start. If cranked for a bit, it would fire, but not start. Now it will turn over, but not fire at all. Seems like it isnt getting any gas. I will be working on it this weekend and would like some advice on things to look for.
I will be replacing all of the spark plugs as well, but would really like to have the fuel problem fixed before I change them.
I first plan on bypassing the fuel pumps and feeding gas directly into the carbs via external tank. Should I use pre-mixed gas/oil for that? If so, what mix?
I know that I have pressure at the pick up pump. Sounds to me like the carb floats are empty.
