If you do nothing how long will it idle for?
Does the idle revs die suddenly or over a period of say 10 secs , 30 secs to what?
By pumping the bulb will it continue to idle? That is very significant?
Will it restart normally or must you use the choke?
Do you need to pump the bulb to get it to start?
My thoughts are about raising the fuel tank to atleast the height of the carbs and as a tempory measure i'd replace the fuel tubing by clear transparent stuff just to watch the fuel flow.
I don't know the engine how many carbs and how many cylinders? Pull or electric?
Engine runs smooth in idle for around 1minute.
Dies in less than 5secs sometimes longer but no more than 10.
If I keep priming slightly it will continue to run.
It will restart straight away by either choke, no priming, or no choke with priming.
It's got an inline fuel filter that I can see is always full of fuel.
It's a tohatsu m50d2, 3 cylinder with 3 carbs and its pull start
