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

    johnson gt 150 1988 starts and idles well but wont come out of the hole without bumping electric choke and continue to bump choke from time to time and I have used additives to get the water out of fuel.

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.

This is a known issue. Check all your linkages and throttle stop screws. Also check there is slack in the throttle cable when the control lever is centred and that the hand throttle lever isn't activated. Check the inlet manifolds for tightness and leaks.

Take a look at these forums and videos.

    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.
