    Beating a Dead Horse SL75 Fuel tank Press con't

    Prior posts about the In and Out fuel relief valves and my flooding engine with gobs of fuel.

    I'm guessing that fuel pressure built up in the tank,-blew off the hose and clamp on the return line for #2 which started fuel siphoning to wherever it would go until the pressure dropped. This liquid locked the engine and consequently no start.

    Thus filling the engine and also some fuel in the hull.

    Does this seem reasonable or even possible ??? I looked at the Mikuni fuel carburetor cutaway picture and it seems possible to me.
