Question about Boating
We have had it worked on three times, the first two times the shop hooked up their own gas supply to get it running. They stated that two of the three cylinders were running great, but one was gummed. They wanted to rebuild all three iof them. Being in a limited budget we asked that they only fix the one that was faulty. So they did, then they call us and we come get it, and go out one day to try it and it was starved enough for gas that you could not get on plane, and it was now suddenly giving a Low oil warning, So we took it out and hauled it back home. Then back down to the shop. they said the problem was that they had not hookedc up our tanks fuel supply when they were working on it and that the oil float had broke and needed replaced. So they work another $200 into the bill. and give us a call. So now we are on vacation and just tried the boat, and it run fine for a few hundered yards and started running sour again. They had replaced a 45degree elbow that has a flow restriction. the Guy explained that when he squeezed the bulb it stayed collapesd. So once again it is fouling the plugs. runniung sour, and cant get on plane to save its soul. Can there be any chance we got some ethanol that is breaking down the gas tubes? or possible causing plug fouling>?
First thing is to find anthor shop you need to change the plugs drain the oil out of the resvoir and mix the gas and oil 50;1 that will keep you from fouling plugs and will probally fix your problem it sounds like it is getting to much oil try that and comment me back and we will get it fixed good luck try to enjoy your vaca
