I picked up water in my gas for my boat and Tahoe during a trip to SC a few weeks back. To make a long story short it basically ruined my fishing trip, and when we started back up Saluda Mt. the Tahoe's fuel pick up is in the rear and cut out midway up the mountain.

Both are fine now except for my Yamaha V4 130 hp (2cycle). If you can get it started it runs great. It will start after it's cut off, but cold starting is a problem. The hand fuel pump just keeps pumping and does not tighten. Anybody got any ideas? Trash from the bad fuel sticking the needle valve open, therefore the bowls are not filling up and staying up?

Does anybody know someone in the K'town area that is good with Yamahas?

Thanks

I Think that is what a lot of my lower intestinal problem is coming from. Water is mixing with gas and my popoff valve is fluttering.

I got this hose at the house I used to siphon out the water with, but YOU will have to do the siphoning yourself!
