Question about Boating
i have the problem that my 2 cylinders evinrude boatengine is only working on 1 cyl after approx 10 to 15 min on sea.
When i release the trottle then (sometimes) the second cylinder is catching up again and keep on working when i stay below a certain rpm.
I have changed the 2 spark plugs and then it works again on 2 cylinders, but again after approx 10-15 minutes the 2nd cylinder is again giving up... i think it is a combined problem, unless i use the wrong sparkplugs. I have now the Champion L85 short spark plugs. Starting the engine (manual) is no problem, even when working on 1 cylinder.
I have technical education and can do a lot myself, i only need suggestions.
I have tested the spark plugs when not fitted into the engine to check the spark and i have the impression that the little spark of one cylinder is white and i think it should be blue.
Thanks anyway for some advice.
Hello enjoy42. From the information you have provided I would lean to the weak cylinder coil. Unplug the good spark plug wire & test run the engine on the weak cylinder. You could go to swapping the coils on the cylinders. Check your wiring terminals on the coils. Check with a marine dealer for the correct plug. I owned a 35 Evinrude on a Bass boat & it would out run my buddys 40 Mercury. Good Fishing.
