Question about Light Outboard Motor Boat Bass Fishing Saltwater Base

1 Answer

No acceleration I have a 75 horse power evinrude outboard starts and runs great out of the water idles and goes up throttle like a champ on the hose but as soon as I get in the water it falls on its face I have to pump the choke to get it to run good.It will only run good for a couple minutes then it falls again hit the choke and it runs great again for a couple minutes and continues this way.I thought if I ran it a while it would line itself out but it hasn't.any help would be appreciated thanks

I'd be checking fuel flow. Usually if you have to choke or squeeze a primer bulb to keep it going, the motor isn't getting enough fuel. Check all fuel lines and connections are air tight, then if problem persists, investigate fuel pump.

A good carburettor cleanout and new carb overhaul kit wont hurt either.

You should have a High Speed carb adjust and a Low Speed carb adjust. If it's running fine while idling, adjust the high speed setting. If you have two nobs, its the lower one. May be set wrong. If you don't have two nobs, remove the carburator and check the jets to make sure they are completely clean or better yet, order yourself a carb rebuild kit to take care of all of this. I just rebuilt my 1971 evinrude 4hp and the carb kit made the world of difference.

Evinrude, 15hp 4cycle outboard, 2000 model - starves for gas


hi obviously a fuel fault someware / when motors are winterised the fuel system is usualy emptied, this causes gaskets and diaphrams to dry out and split try it with the tank filler off /replace the diaphram in the carb and i am pretty shure that will solve the problem /nb / as this motor has stood for a time and does not do much work /outboards love work check the water pump impellor and put a spoonful of oil in a full tank of gas hope this helps merlin v12

35hp Johnson evinrude outboard not running at full potential


Hi, did you buy your engine used? Sounds like your gonna have to get the carb or carbs cleaned. Its possible you could have a stopped up fuel filter, or not enough spark but i am guessing its gonna be the carbs. They got some gunk in em i bet. Probably old fuel turned to gunk from setting up. I had the same problem on my 40 horse.

My mercury 35 hp outboard motor idle's fine but won't run


While at the river try to adjust the fuel air mixture. When you are on the water it puts the engine under a load and if that dont work then dont be afraid to bump up the idle stop screw slightly.
