Schrader Valve on 98 200 Ocean pro

Hello Bill:


My 200 O-Pro was in a grumpy mood when tried to start it last saturday,


I hadn't run it for awhile, and mistakenly flooded it on my first try.  I popped the cwol off and noticed the Schrader valve was dripping fuel (which it had never done before.) 


I checked the BRP parts list and noticed that I may have a bad O-Ring where the valve is inserted into the primer module..(or does this thing leak when you flood it bad?)


Here's a dumb question, Does it matter which position the Scrader valve pointer is in  for normal operation?


(the pointer is either pointing sideways or straight down). 


After I let it sit for about 20 minutes, she fired right up.

It would be better to replace the red valve # 175158 that comes with an o-ring attached. If the cover gasket is black, replace it with a new one. Inspect the cover for any cracks as torquing the screws too tight can damage it.


For normal operation, the red lever pointer faces the centerline of the solenoid. In other words, turn the lever fully clockwise when looking at it.
