The prop is cavitating. The outdrive is not trimed under enough or the prop is damaged (providing it is the correct prop.)

Should have bought a 225/250 hp. Not quite enough power for my 23 foot center console. Is there a "chip" or something to get some more HP out of this motor?

Probably but most likely will shorten engine life. Change of prop to one that will cope with higher RPM if there is such a thing, may allow higher engine revs, therefore, more horsepower. If it's an inboard engine. If outboard talk to your dealer.

How to winterize an inboard/outboard boat motor

Flush the motor with fresh water, drain and refill drive gear with fresh oil , the same with the motor, remove spark plugs inject 10 ml of engine oil into each cylinder, turn engine over by hand so cylinder walls are coated, refit plugs. I then like to spray every thing WD 40. Remove the battery if you have a trickle charger connect it.

I just got a new boat this summer and I live in Seattle, where I will use my boat year round. I have been told that I should winterize the motor so it doesn't freeze in the lower temperatures. What should...

I used to live in the Chicago area. We definitely had winter (below zero).I went thru extensive winterization for the inboards and stern drives. I fogged outboards and put Sta-bil in the gas. I also ran the gas out of the carbs or drained them but the boats would sit unused for 6 months. Does the boat stay in the water? If on a trailer, lower the motor so it is in the run (trim down) and the water will run out. If you tilt it up after this for storage, cover the gear case as it can fill with rain water and freeze.

I have a 40hp four stroke about 6 years old. It has sailed about 100 hours. The motor strarts and is running fine to about 2000 rpm. Between rpm 2000 and 3000 the engine is running badly. I'll be grateful...

Change the oil seal at the top and bottom engine and service or rebuilt your carb. Clean-up all electronic gear under the engine flywheel maybe its wet by the oil mixed.

Mercruiser 5.7 litre inboard engine Impeller fault

You could be right. Check your idle rpm to see if the motor DIESELS after shutdown. See if linkage and carb setting can be reduced for RPM. Last, check your timing. If it has springs in the distributor you should not see rust powder on pivot points. Binding would keep engine overadvanced at shutdown. Then basic timing could be off too.

Outboard motor won't run under load

I have 1969 5hp Johnson. Starts and runs good, but will only push a 14ft row boat slow at low to medium rpm. When at higher rpm the the motor just revs up and the boat slows down to almost nothing just like it has seaweed around prop.Any help would be great.
