Fuel tank venting
I just purchased a FD226 with a Yamaha 200. It starts fine but the bulb collapses and motor can't pull fuel. Does fine at idol or low speed but chokes out above that. Dealer not helping much. I tried to pull the pull tube out of the tank to check for debris or something obvious. Brutal to get to and the tube won't come all the way out so I tapped many times trying to make something successful happen. Guess it sounds like the venting isn't working but have no idea what to do to check or correct it.
