Question about Boating

Where is the choke solenoid for an evinrude 200 hp located. I have a problem with the choke but cannot find where the solenoid is located on the motor to repair

Just need to know where it is so I can check the choke is working properly. It seems the engine is running with the choke stuck on which is making the engine run on reduced power when accelerating.... I have managed to find the fuel pump which apparently looks similar. Can anyone please help on where to find this?

SOURCE: engine was flooding out\now fuel primer has to be used to run

recheck float level as well as needle and seat for sticking and or damage, just crack line to bleed air , and eventually it self bleeds anyway... also unless you replaced with new floats check float weight with a float scale to see if floats are saturated or have fuel inside making the heavy and inaccurate ...

SOURCE: Evinrude 3.3 does not run proper when the choke is off

It sounds like the manifold vacuum is low. This would mean the engine is getting more air than it needs and can not create the vacuum for fuel draw. When you choke it, the outside air is reduced and the vacuum goes up and more fuel is drawn in enriching the mixture. The raw gas can not atomize without the vacuum. You swing the other way when you dump gas without the choke.

If you can find a vacuum port to attach a vacuum gauge, you turn the airmixture screw until you have the most vacuum(highest) and then turn the mixture screw in until the vacuum just starts to drop. This is the optimum setting. Marine shops also use flow (meter)flaps to balance multiple carbs on a motor like they do on motorcycles.

You could get the timing checked because this will affect vacuum draw too. This site is suppose to have free manuals, but you may have to Browse the internet for other sources.
Let us know how you made out.

What should the compression be on a 1988 evinrude 185hp outboard?

The compression on your Evinrude outboard should be at least 100 with no more than 10% difference between cylinders. Keep in mind gauges can give very different results. Also, remember the test should be run when the engine is warm!

Hope this helps!

Why doesn't it accelerate unless I engage the choke?

Scotty, this is usually due to carburetor being dirty(plugged jets) or a vacuum leak.

Cn ne one tell me the poistion of the choke

On some of these motors you only press the choke buttton while it is cranking. You may have a problem with the power to the choke. You may want to test the choke solenoid by operating the choke button while the ignition is on momentarily. You can then see if all choke flaps move. There may be an adjustment to keep a little gap for air to enter.
