found hard to start cure
#1
Thought my fuel filter position was my reqirement to prime carb after sitting. Not so, still had problem after mounting filter horizonally instead of vert. After changing oil was looking for any leak and found gas line before pump shooting gas every few seconds, Could have caused fire... rjust below header. Must be creating air pocket before pump. Another fix to make before next cruise.

Good catch, that could have turned ugly.

It's easy to overlook those hoses. Like Steve said, good catch.
