Difficult restarts when warm
It takes repeated restarts, generous fast idle on the throttle and even a quick hit of the primer to get it running good enough to put into gear. Once I get it to throttle up while in gear, it runs perfectly. Sometimes this can take up to five-minutes, which is not good when you are trying to pick up divers or get away from a dock
I know these engines are known for this hot soak issue, but is there any other contributing factor(s) like a stuck vapor separator float or timing issue that might cause it?
Any quick checks to verify these systems are working?
