Likely a connection issue. Remove, CLEAN and replace all connections. Tighten properly. Could also be a bad starter relay.

After running my johnson 4hp 2s for a couple of hours in the bay it starting giving a strange noise and then cut out.i managed to get it started again but coudnt get above half speed.


Hey Pete.. this sounds serious.... will it rev up while in neutral? If it revs freely and high.. the power head should be ok.. if it will NOT rev up freely and high.. STOP - you are causing more damage..
Check the compression with a good gauge..it should be 125psi minimum.. with no more than 10 psi difference between any two cylinders.. DO this WITH the THROTTLE WIDE OPEN...
Can you turn the propeller by hand while it is in neutral?..Of not.. this is the problem.

Mariner 4hp are identical to Yamaha engines.

15 hp yamaha not shifting stuck in gear


First, check the linkage under the motor cover. It stoops you from given the engine too much throttle when the motor is in neutral but can jam the system if you try to shift out of gear at too fast of speed. Or a link in that system could be broken/loose. If all looks OK the check your lower unit oil. If none or water, the gear case could be trash.

Weedeater gas blower FLI500E. The pull cord has become jammed. How can I un-jam the rope pull? I have removed the bottom of the blower and can get the rope pulled out, but it will not retract properly or...


You have to find a way to push the starter. It normally gets all stuck due to grease. One push with a screwdriver on the actual starter (The thing the rope turns) should wind the whole cord up. If not, clean it. Alot of oil/chunky-ness gets trapt when your using it.
