'96 Evinrude 25hp - kills at trolling speed

9 posts in this topic

Have '96 rude 25hp 2-stroke. Last year was fine. This year it started acting as if the bulb has leak - need to pump it up after sitting just a min or two. Also won't troll at idle, it will slowly lose rpm and kill unless you goose it a bit. At higher than idle it will troll for extended periods.

I replaced the fuel line and bulb, but reused the same fittings (good tight hose clamps). Still same thing. It sure seems like it has an air leak. Could the gas tank filler cap be leaking?

I did not change plugs this spring, could bad/old plugs do this? At slightly higher rpms no killing at all, and it starts a bit hard and needs lots of choke even when warm.

Thanks for any advice.

The gas tank filler cap shouldn't make any difference - the tanks are open to vent, unless you're not opening the vent on it.

Follow the fuel hose all the way to the pump - any leaks when you pump the bulb up?

I'm guessing that it's not a leak, given that it runs fine at higher speeds. It might be time for a fuel pump rebuild.

Thanks. There is no vent on the tank, like on our merc tank. I just screw the cap back on tight after filling up, and off we go. I am not supposed to losen the cap am I? I always thought Mercs you needed it vented, and OMC were closed tanks, no?...

No visible leaks anywhere. Is the fuel pump rebuild doable on the water? Is there a kit I can buy? I think it is just that little diaphragm right?... or not...? I am not a mech, but not afraid to tear into it smile

Thanks!

The tank might not have a vent screw but theres a spring loaded vent. If your certain theres no air leak in the fuel line then I agree with the fuel pump. I dirty carb, namely, the low speed end will do that but you said you had to keep pumping the bulb up.

Its a simple diaphragm pump.

Those have some pretty small passages in the low speed circuit of the carb. Doesn't take much to obstruct gas flow. I'd look at a good cleaning and rebuild of the carb. As the other mentioned, rebuilding the fuel pump is an easy fix as well.

I had a '91 40hp Evinrude do the same thing, had the carbs cleaned and bingo, she runs like a champ.

Thanks all. Looks like I might wait till fall, then do a little cleaning while it is on shore.

I would replace the connections on the gas line at the tank and at the motor. I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the O ring in one of the connections.

I used to have a 95 Evinrude 25hp with the same problem, it would bog down and then rev up. Turned out to be a crack in a plastic fitting on the gas tank, too much air was getting in.

    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
