I would recomend that you check the NAMBA or IMPBA site for your area you might be surprised to find a local club nearby. You should find that most club members are willing to help you out if you meet them at their lake. Plus you will make new friends.

With that said a very commen mistake for newbies is swapping the postion of the gas lines. If you are running the stock carb on the BJ the fuel goes in at the bottom and the return line is on the primer bulb side. Give us some more details and pictures what is it or isn't it doing?

I live here at the LOTO and would be happy to help you out with your BJ55. I also have the same boat.

I'll give you a call sometime Scott. Maybe one evening next week we can take a look at you boat. Do you have any pictures?
