problem with merc

3 posts in this topic

heres the skinny
bought a new 16' fisher last year. First mistake, had a 50 horse 4-stroke carbed on it. was recalled do to valve problem i think? was replaced with a 50 horse 4-stroke EFI. now i cant pull a many rpm 5100 tops compared to 5700 with the first motor. same prop is being used. could this be a linkage problem? the reason i ask is that it shifts into gear right away but then a big dead spots till the throttle hit about the 10 o'clock position? any thoughts? thanks Snowking

The max rpm of that motor is 5500, to 6000, so I would guess it is the prop, or the throttle adjustment.
The shift, and throttle adjustments are completely different adjustments in the motor.
I would take off the motor cover and see how the throttle linkage is reacting while you have someone else move the throttle. If it's not moving all the way, or not starting to move right after the motor goes in gear, it's an easy adjustment.
I would highly recommend getting the repair manual for the motor. It explains all adjustments, and repairs in good detail.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
