OK so I have a 1996 4 stroke evinrude 15hp. The motor will run without the fuel line hooked up with the gas in the bowl but floods out bad with the line hooked up.
--with the gas line attached and the carb together when you crank the motor it will not start and gas come out of the air cleaner
--the float and needle is not stuck I took the carb apart about 5 times
--if the float bowl is off and I hold the float up no gas comes into the bowl when cranking the motor
--if the float is down gas pours everywhere when cranking the motor
--the motor will run with the float bowl off and the float down with gas going everywhere
--the motor will run on starting fluid sprayed into the air cleaner
--if i get the motor running and plug the gas line in the motor floods out and dies
This is driving me nuts because all of the reasons a motor usually floods is not happening here IE float stuck, needle stuck, etc.
ideas anyone? anyone in long beach wanna come take a look Ill be happy to pay...Thanks in advance!
