Question 85 hp yamaha will not turn over after sitting for a while


have an 85 hp Yamaha and it runs good, but after sitting for a long time, when you turn the key, the motor will not turn...................if you hand turn the flywheel a few times, then it fires up.

put a new battery still same problem

also, the fuel filter near the motor does not seem to be holding pressure....if I press the blub it fills up but will empty within a few min.??? when I start the motor, it runs empty as well.....................not sure if these two are relate

please help or offer suggestions
