evinrude problem

5 posts in this topic

Buddies boat runnin like [PoorWordUsage]..It sat for two years b4 he bought it . Was fogged and everything started up fine when he got it. Now it wont idle well at times and shuts off...usually as hes trying to get it on trailer..lol AND when he hits the throttle to take off it bogs down bad. He did say it wont do it if he chokes it when hes taking off full throttle. 89 evinrude 60 hp

open up the idle mixture screws a 1/4 turn and test. If necessary, another 1/4 turn

I would check compression, spark and then I'd overhaul the carburetors.

Mine did the same when I got it and like his had sat for a couple years. Once I got the old gas out and new gas in and the fog oil ran out it was better. Put a new bulb and hose on it and a couple cans of seafoam and its ran great every since. Of course new plugs. Mines a 93 70hp. It still has it moments at first start if it's sat for a couple weeks but it still has the original injection system that I have been told is rare now a days.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
