'99 Honda 25hp hiccups at high speed

4 posts in this topic

My engine starts good, idles good, does just about everything good except that it kind of hiccups while running WOT. Doesn't slow down when WO, just hiccups several times a minute - maybe every 15-20 seconds or so. I kind of think it might be running a bit rich - loading up? Plugs have not shown anything out of the ordinary, but plan to replace soon. Fuel pump? Looking for help here.

Any advice on this issue? Are there carb settings I can go back to and adjust as needed - do not have owner's manual for this engine.

I'm not much of a mechanic but, assuming the motor is a 4 stroke, the fuel mix should be automatic.

Is the fuel bulb hard when motoring? if not maybe a fuel flow issue-fuel filter clogged?

I did a quick search online and found a couple ideas.

1. High speed jet plugged on carb? clean and resync.

2. Rev limiter if you have too high RPM?

Seloc and Clymers sell repar manuals for your model, might be a worthy purchase. Good luck,

Could be water in your gas too. How new / old is your gas?

It sounds like that or something floating around in the bowl, clogging the high speed jet from time to time.

I think marine man it write, I have a few 25 hondas and every once in a while we need to clean out a bowl. They will get a little sediment in them at times and will act just like you described.

Dump the bowl and report back.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
