Carbs probably need to be cleaned and re-built. Common problem in outboards that havent been run in a while

SOURCE: Yamaha 115hp 2 stroke Outboard Boat Motor. Went

is it carbureted or fuel injected? are your warning horns working? if it iscarbureted then a few easy test can be done to find out. if its fuel injected then its a little harder but not impossible.(1) check compression. without the year model I'm giving you a average numbers. all cylinders need to be over 100 lbs and equal each other within 5 lbs.(2) check spark. use a spark gap tester all cylinders should jump a half inch gap. if you have good compression and good spark fuel is the problem nine times out of ten. clean fuel lines replace primer bulb and replace all fuel filters. Yamaha has a gravity filter under the engine coul. take it to the lake if no improvement. clean carbs. same test to be and fuel system service used of fuel injected engines. if no improvement in engine preformance then you will have to take it to a dealer to test with computer.

My Mercury 2cycle, 3 cylinder,60HP outboard run good on 3500-4000 rpm, when I enter no wake zone and run about 1500 rpm motor missfire and makes WOOSH SOUND every few secs. What possibly cause this?


Hmmm... could be build up of exaust pressure in the housing, released after so many piston strokes? Never heard of this. Your exaust is pushed out thru the shaft case.

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.

What is the correct fuel/oil mix for evinrude 4hp ?


the proper mix is 50 to 1 or 16 oz to every 6 gallons,in my little boat I put 4 quarts in the 48 gal tank and its been running for 22 years,your running way to rich and your plug is probaly fouled,take it out clean it up/dump your fuel and mix it right,thats a great motor you got,I hunted with it for years,oh yeah when you get started run it till all the smoke is gone or you will have carb problems ,if you dont have them all ready,a little carb cleaner wont hurt but get it running first,or all that trash will foul you out,have a great trip bartriley1
