Knoxville area.

I have a V4 130HP 2-stroke, that needs some fine tuning before the fall redfish/trout season. Got anybody you would suggest? Thanks

I never did either until I got water in my gas from a station in SC on i-95. It screwed up my truck and my boat. Right now it starts but takes a long time to start. It's acting as if it's not getting gas on initial start up. Once started it cracks great but if it sits it's a mother to start.

Dump your fuel, put a fuel/water separator in line with your fuel line. Never let your gas sit for very long, the ethanol in gas somehow makes water. Thank your ignorant, greed stricken, self serving, government for putting corn in our gas and keeping our planet green. With the price of oil at historic highs the best thing they can come up with it to use our most valuable food source as gas. What a bunch of forward thinkers we have in office these days.

Did all the above as soon as I got back. It's like (no mechanic here but worked on some carbs back in the 70's) the bowl is not filling up when I squeeze the bulb. It gets tight and then it almost immediately loosens up. Once it starts, no problem on restart right away. if you wait 30min to an hour, then back to the same problem.

I appreciate all the help and names. I will let you know how it goes.
