Comments about West Marine Fuel Line Connector for Johnson & Evinrude Applications, 3/8" Barb, Female:
Over time, and with today's gasoline blends (thank you State of California), the rubber seal around the ball at the exit of this connector fails to seal. When priming the fuel line the you can hear the air exiting and then observe the gas squiting out. The leaky seal will also draw air, not fuel, when in operation and kill the motor. Time for new connector. Make the swap - fix the problem.
