Ok yesterday I diagnosed a lack of fuel being able to be primed to the engine. After removing the line from the engine to the ball it reassured my assessment as the diaphragm most have collapsed.
Today I replaced the ball and it primed ok but never could get the ball tight. The ball would eventually return to its non-collapsed state at idle. Under higher throttle while running the ball would collapse. I figured this may be putting my fuel pump under additional strain so I returned to the dock. Please advise of any remedies or if I have one at all. Thanks in advance.
