I have a problem with my boat I kind of have a idea what it is maybe you can tell me.. my boat keepso bogging when I give it gas I was thinking if it's the fuel lines?
There could be air in the fuel lines, so you could check there. However, most of the time the carb needs to be rebuilt or cleaned or a fuel pump problem. Your engine is starving for fuel, so it could be a few different things. Best thing to do is contact a technician and get it diagnosed properly so you can replace/fix the issue.
Based on the review saying the connector was much larger than 3/8, what is the truth? is the barbed connector 3/8?
It is for 5/16" hose. It could be that we had wrong information on the web page those years ago for the review, now that info is updated and it is for a 5/16" hose. It fits engines: 5-90 HP 2 stroke and TLDI models.
