Unfotunately not - I'd be quite pleased if this was the cause as at least I'd know what was causing it:-)
Got out in the boat today and confirmed that it ran OK with a small aux tank connected directly to the engine - WOT for 10 mins no probs. With the main tank connected, the engine dies after a minute at WOT.
So, I don't really know if that helps narrow it down. I'll need to go out with someone else (other than the wife who was holding the children) on a calm day to see if the primer bulk is going flat - it's inside the console and would require sitting in the bow to see it - not easy if your driving.
I had a good look at the connector and the o-ring is OK - changing the connector didn't seem to help (I broke the old one a few weeks ago...)
Has anyone had any issues with fuel hose flattening? It's TEMPO fuel hose (internal 3/8 diam) and seems quite soft to me. It's new and the guy I got it from assured me it was the latest spec stuff. I had TEMPO hose on my last RIB but it was braided and seemed a lot more solid. Was wondering if this would be a possible problem. The fuel hose is inside a conduit pretty much all the way from the fuel filter to the engine so it can't get squashed by any other cables, hoses etc.
