smitch6 Posted June 8, 2010 Share Posted June 8, 2010 I bought a little dingy the weekend for a very reasonable price lol the outboard on it is fairly new a 2003 model the people i got it from are the sort that money is no object they always have loads of work done on their normal boat anyway the outboard is playing up big time it started 1st time but ran rough, very rough it has been stood for at least a year in their garage with no fuel in.... she started fine when cold but as soon as she got hot she cut out and wouldn't start anyway we stripped the carb out and cleaned it and cleaned the plug. still no joy so i have put a new plug in stripped the carb apart completely and cleaned it with carb cleaner put some redex only a capfull in the tank (tank is only 1l) and half filled the tank ran it and ran and its loads better but at anything more than half revs it is really rough but if you pull the choke very slightly it really improves it for a short while but after a time it seems to die again so you back the throttle off and she's fine she ticks over brill and starts now hot or cold on the 1st pull so its only the high end revs i would suspect fuel starving but as i have cleaned it 3 times i can't see how the jet is clean as a whistle been sprayed and poked and all sorts lol its not the cooling as its air cooled and not water any ideas please Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
