Hello to all;
Fourth lake failure of a long-term project boat. Motor ran great in the past. Fuel starvation issues among other things; hmmm.
I think it's been leaking at the fuel line connectors. Both, (if not all four) of the new BRP fittings I got this last Jan.
They leak fuel out, and air in, on both of the set-up. I see the gas, and finally heard them sucking air when I pump the primer bulb. Both fittings, on three different tanks.
But I have the cleanest carburetor in town. Wasted time and money, because I assumed that new, brand name parts would work.
And, both primer bulbs are very soft rubber. I see one has a 5/8" split in it, after this last attempt. Softest ones I've seen / felt. Less than 6 months old. Same e-bay seller, with 99.something positive feedback.
I'll take the blame for assuming, but suspect these parts haven't helped.
When I look at the Atwood Wallymart fittings, they seem to have smaller openings. Can't really tell, though. I tried to include pictures which are comparable, w/ questionable ability, (my BRP fittings have yellow). The Atwood primer bulbs are firmer, and guaranteed for 2 years.
Anyone have fittings which were loose?
I'm gonna try out a couple of the 'mart fittings and report anything useful.
All opinions welcome.
Many thanks, and happy motoring to all.
