All seems good. Pump will pump gas when cranking. and checked fuel inlet screen.
I will add that yesterday when attempting to start in a trashcan the carb would not take any fuel at all. I took the carb off removed the bowl and the needle was stuck closed. I did not take the float, needle and seat out just worked it up and down and it seemed to be fine and move freely, put it back together and it started right up. I know I should have taken it apart.
FF to today and the above issue with surging, that's why I am guessing the needle is sticking.
Removed the carb and opened it up just now and although the needle moved up and down there seemed to be a little "catch" in the movement of the needle. I removed needle and seat and there was a tiny bit of junk under the seat. Cleaned it up and now the needle moves freely.
I will probably order a rebuild kit for the pump and the carb, but wanting to take the boat out tomorrow
If in fact a sticky needle can cause surging I will give it a try ???
