2000 80 Hp. 4 Stroke Yamaha

Recommended Posts

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.

I don't know if it really makes a difference, but I always burn 91 non-oxy gas.   And fresh gas does make a difference.  

 

You might start with putting new plugs in it.    Along with fresh gas, it might make a real difference.

If you stored it with regular in it, even with stabil, it's worth dumping the old gas in a vehicle, a few gallons at a time, and putting all new non-oxy in.  And a set of plugs.  Whole mess shouldn't be 50 bucks, and you have eliminated the first couple potential issues.

Ditto... I have 1001 reasons to never run anything but 91 non oxy in any small engine. I have 2002 reasons for using ONLY 91octane non oxygenated non ethanol premium in your Carbureted Yamaha 4 stroke outboard. I've been a fixing/rigging yamaha outboards for 20 years. If you want more reasons just search "phase separation". 

NOBODY SAVES MONEY BUYING THE CHEAP GAS FOR THEIR BOAT! Drain and mop out tank and replace all fuel filters. Then use the good gas. Carbs may be need a thorough ultrasonic cleaning from the dump gas already.

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?

It should siphon thru fuel hose assembly. May have to add length to get below the boat floor.

I would remove a floor panel if the sender isn't accessible and pull the sender out. Make a 'rag on a stick' and mop it dry.... But that's just me....

Siphoning at the correct angle will get most of it. If it has an antisiphon valve (most outboards don't) you can pump it out with the primer bulb slowly... Worst case, remove sender to siphon directly, then mop it. 

Or.... Use a pump

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!

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.

Couple of guesses... thermostat, like you saisd. Also, could there just be a build up of crud in the cooling system that could be flashed out somehow?  Like does this motor have one of those hose hookup things?

Finally, how sure are you that you didn't forget to replace something when doing the impeller or messed up somehow?

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
