Got me a new boat for up north at our camper. Got the motor from a friend who hasn't used it for 2 years. I put new gas and oil in the can this morning. After about 15 pulls I got her started but even though I had the ear muffs attached, no water was streaming out of the pee hole. I know for a fact it was fine when put away so do you think something just crawled in there and built a nest?

Sometimes you can run a fine wire up the pizz hole and clear it.  The impeller may have just had enough?  😕

Dry rot was my thought.  

 

I would shoot some compressed air in there, but I'm guessing it's not gonna fix it.  That little motor probably doesn't pee hard but I doubt anything that's small enough to crawl in there can build a nest strong enough to hold water back.  I've been down that road of wishful thinking before 😉

 

Not too hard to drop the lower unit on that thing and give it a look.

Those Johnsons don't pee with muffs on, put it in a barrel or garbage can and run it.

^^^^^This is the answer^^^^^

I did some research online yesterday after I posted this and it appears that these little motors need to be in a barrel of water that is well over the impeller level and even then sometimes you need to put the motor in gear to get it pumping. After I did that, it was peeing like Smurfy after 6 light beers.😁

😣:crazy: HEY!!!!!!!! how'd you know!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so now after getting that issue taken care of, it appears that the motor runs great at higher speeds but will not stay running at idle speed. 

 

I took the carb off and thoroughly cleaned it even though it looked surprisingly clean in the first place. I also took the little fuel pump off and cleaned all those parts and reassembled.  It now idles down farther than it did before but is still not right. 

 

I ordered the kit to rebuild the fuel pump so I will try that when it gets here and see how it goes.

They don't like to idle in a barrel very well, high speed fine -low no.

Seems like you're putting in some work into this thing, Dave.  Maybe you should do like Sledneck suggested in a different thread and just buy a brand new boat.  From the looks of the tow vehicle, I'd buy a new truck too.

Idle speed adjustment?  What do those have for an ignition system?  Pull the flywheel and check the points?

I would def try running it in the lake first, but it could need an idle adjustment or a low speed needle adjustment needed on the carb.

 

Got it. We are bringing it with us up north tonight and were planning to give it a test run in the lake anyway so we will try it out and I will report back next week.

    • I did ask about dish soap and he said because there are  no toxicity studies that have been done with soap mixed with their product he can't legally comment on it. He did make it clear in his own way it wasn't needed. Haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet.
    • Interesting.  I was searching for instructions and got conflicting advice.   The no oil thing is good to know...I've got this creeping charlie issue in my lawn.   2,4-D and triminic doesn't seem to do much.    Gonna give this stuff a try.  What did they say about a little soap in the tank?
    • If it is garter snakes, pick them up with your hand and put in a bag.   Release them a mile or so away.  
    • One of my absolute fears, I'd sell the house!
    • Ask and ye shall receive. Now I have so many orioles, lots of young ones, I'm going thru almost a jar of jelly every 2 days! I wouldn't think they would be migrating thru going south yet would they? The catbirds like it too and I have about 1/2 dozen of those. They are pretty neat birds. I also have about a dozen of some kind of sparrow hang around that I can't identify. I can't take good enough pictures to post or I would. They are big birds and the closest I can come is a white crowned but they are not white on top of their heads, that's brown but have black and white stripes over the eyes like white crowned. Also their chests are mottled yellowish brown and darker brown. No yellow patch or white throat like a white throated. Broken white stripes on the wings and lower back. Bill is dark gray on top and light translucent whitish (not really pink?) and they actually look a lot like a female Grossbeak but I know they aren't. Seems one of the sexes are a little browner than white on the head stripes.   They are brown around the eyes but do have a thin white area below that to neck but the white does not go under the bill/throat. I'm searching websites but still can't find them.
    • Delcecchi, Just got off the phone with Brushtox customer service. For tank/spot treating lawn use 3/4 oz per gallon. No surfactants (Diesel will kill all grasses). Should not harm northern grass if directions are followed. Be sure of zero rain for 24 hours. (The mix for brush killing is 4-6 oz/gal and does require surfactant.) Weed will probably take a week to show results. BE Sure to wear long sleeves, long pants, rubber/latex gloves, shoes and socks, and eye protection, it's very irritating to eyes. Apply with coarse spray.  The guy had never heard of this Celandine Majus (Sp)?  Phone number is 800 264 5281 if needed and they are very helpful.  I haven't talked to the Crossbow people yet but plan to later today.  Southern Ag.(crossbow) phone is 941 722 3285 
    • Our annual ice fishing kickoff event is a little over a month away!  We just want to make sure everyone gets it on their calendars!   This year's date is Saturday, September 28.  Held at our building in Blaine, MN.   We'll have seminars from Ice Team and Ice Force Pros, along with vendors showcasing all of the new products for the upcoming ice fishing season!   Oh, and AWESOME deals on everything you need to have a successful season!   We'll post more details as we get closer, but for now please mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28 and we'll see you there!!   Thanks for all of the support!!
    • https://raganandmassey.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Brushtox_1gal.pdf   Looks like a couple quarts per 100 gallons, with some diesel mixed in.   That would be like maybe an ounce or a little less per gallon.   Sounds like heavy duty stuff.   
    • Warning about 80 is just for the day you spray right? It is getting cooler now so I should be ok. Del, I wonder if that Brushtox has mixing instructions for brush killing. That would be pretty strong and I have been warned about following the instructions exactly. Thank you. I will check into it today.
