This brand new Attwood fuel line and primer bulb kit from Walmart can damage your motor. These pictures are the one I put on my boat 2 months ago.

Hope you didn't replace everything else like I did frown. Finally figured it out when I took the carbs off to clean them again. The float bowls were empty.

I’ve always bough OEM ones. My dad put a cheap fuel line on a motor growing up and we spent a year trying to figure out what the issue was. It’s worth paying double the price for a quality one.
