  1. To all the, (2001 Yamaha 80 hp. 4 stroke on a 18.6 Lund ) guru"s out there. New thing with my motor.... If I take it out with 3 guys in it that weigh 250 each appx... I leave the boat landing and get it on plane and up to like 29-30 mph and 5200 rpm's. After awhile,, like a 15 minute ride across the lake I go to a stop and the alarm goes off and I see like heat smoke coming out of the back of motor. If I put it in neutral and rev it up a couple times the smoke and alarm quits and it is good to go all day like trolling etc. I did put a new water pump and impeller in it last year also. I have not changed the thermostat in maybe 5 years either. YEA I NKOW >>> Every couple hundred hours down here in the s.w. part of minnesota. Yes, the lakes are shallow and green and muddy all the time. I'm leaning towards the thermostat this weekend. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks guys and gal's.
  2. Got some king salmon i caught and cut in 8" pieces filleted with skin on i want to smoke. Need a easy recipe and what kind of wood do i use?
  3. My L130 Johny Deare has a rear axel off center. The left rear tire is approximately 1" away from the front of fender and the right rear is approximately 3" away from front of fender. How does that happen and how do I realign it. Put a new rear end in it last winter and was straight. Someway it got out of alignment. Thanks
  4. Finally got a chance to reply. Thanks bigfish and others. Drained all the gas and filled with 91 octane, and changed the plugs. Runs the best it has in years!
  5. Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
  6. Ill try that bigfish and let you know how it turns out. Thanks
  7. Thanks guys!!! I have a 18.5' ,, 2001 Lund Pro V with a 80 horse 4 stroke tiller on it. Is there a way to get the old gas out of the tank without using a pump of some type?
  8. Thanks Delcecchi? Just looking for some ideas....
  9. Yes I did Jeremy. It was the resister module. Had some issues with my computer but back to being good again. THANK YOU ALL!
  10. Going to ask what this problem is. Last year I had an issue with it missing off and on and having issues with it accelerating. I thought bad gas. So I put in 10 gallons and ran half way decent but started again. I did change the online fuel filter also. Should a guy run nonoxygenated at like 91 octane in this four stroke to get a better performance? I have always ran regular gas in it but was told by someone to try the 91 octane stuff. Being a four stroke I was thinking maybe not. Maybe just a good tune up. I havent had it tuned up in 4-6 years though. I live in Southwest mn. and is there a good tune up shop around? Otherwise off to South Dakota or Iowa. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
  11. Does anyone know how to check the new resistor module to see if its weak? Ohm test maybe and what the ohms should be? Also, will the fan work on low if the high speed relay is bad? Got in a minute ago and working now again to. Thanks, Jeff
  12. I changed the resistor. Worked great until today.. -8 deg. Right now. I still believe its the high speed relay. Everyone i talked to thought resistor except me. Although it had no melted connections on plug when i put in new resistor. Thought the issue was solved but guess not. I did (WHACK), the blower motor and no change. Thanks for helping out guys.
  13. Any ideas on why my heater fan quit? Has heat etc. But wont blow harder as i turn it up. All fuses are good. Maybe a fan relay?
  14. Running fine until about a week ago. Now it has a irregular miss at acceleration and higher speeds. I changed the dist cap and rotor which was time and checked all the wires and alll are working. The choke will not close when cold . Changed filter at carb and plugs and started to run better until got on highway and ran it for a bit until the temp gage went up over 230 and I shut it down. No idea whats going on. When I got it home(towed it) i started it and started o.k. I went behind it and listened at the exhaust and as he accelerated it at an even(1750rpm) it had a good even run but every once and awhile it would pop out the passenger side exhaust. Not like even but it would pop and then be a second before it did it again and then maybe 7-10 seconds before the next time etc. and so forth. no reason why and I NEED HELP WITH THIS!! thanks, Jeff
  15. Went ahead and changed the fuel pump guys. The spring on the mechanical pump was gone. That solved the cut outs and will start now with a touch of the key. Thanks to all!
