    Hi all,
    I've a 350 chev inboard having trouble starting.
    If motor is left for a few days it will start as soon as it is turned over however mean it is turned off and tried to restart it will not start again unless I pump the throttle like mad while someone else turns the motor over then it will eventually start again.
    I adjusted the carburetor fuel mixture like I was told but am wondering if I've done it wrong as it was fine before, would this cause my problem, if yes how should I fix it.
    Also I have an inline fuel pressure regulator that I have adjusted to see if it helped.
    What should I be looking at first.

    The inline pressure regulator may be the problem. There is no need to have one, since the pump only gets about 7 PSI.
