Default boating today



Actual boat experience. Took the boat out to the Sacramento Delta and San
Joaquin River for a test. New starter, worked. Boat ran like crap when
starting. Gasoline smell. Had some gas around the water separator. When
I pulled the can to replace, I carry spares in the boat, there were 3 pin
hole corrosion holes on the back side. So, I assume the starting up run
like crap was air in the lines to the fuel injections. Ran great after
replacement and no gas fumes. Getting ready for a Donner lake trip.

Probably a little water in the fuel which the filter dutifully removed. How
long since you previously replaced the filter?

I mask off the gasket and intake and shoot several coats of rustoleum
on those filter cans before I install them., They seem to last a lot
longer. I always replace them for rust long before the filter is
actually bad. I wish I could find some with an aluminum can.
I have an electric fuel pump up stream so a leak becomes apparent
pretty fast. I usually toss them at the first sign of a rust spot.

Can is maybe a year old. Had water in tank last year. Can looked good.
At least the side I could see. When I pulled the can, fuel was spitting
out. Is electric fuel pumps. Filter is after the low pressure pump.
AMA I did not have a bilge with 20 gallons of fuel the way the can leaked.
Maybe the wrench freed up the leaks.

Wow! Glad to hear you were able to diagnose and fix the damn problem.

I was first looking for a leak where I disconnected a fuel line from the
separator to get better access to the starter.
