    I have a 115 johnson that runs great but when I pump up the fuel ball as soon as I start running the engine my ball gets soft, It will run fine untill I kill it then I have to pump the ball up again or it just is hard to start and won't hardly take off. Do I need to get another bulb or is the problem something else.

    How old is the fuel lines including the bulb. Could be some trash in the fuel pump screen or a leaking diaphragm

    Maybe you have a loose line or a hose clamp that is loose also. That happened to me after I changed my fuel filter. Check that out and keep us all posted.
