Both plates open fully. Initially the RPM's increased and the boat took off. Then, not so much.....I purchased carburetor rebuild kits and am doing them today, right after a compression check.

In the meantime , what's the round thing between my squeeze bulb and my tank? Never had one on a tank before.... just another question mark to me. Can I discard to eliminate it as a problem. ?
