Question about Light Outboard Motor Boat Bass Fishing Saltwater Base

1 Answer

We have a 1996 Yamaha 40 hp outboard motor. If the kkey is engaged it starts by itself. If it dies and is out back into neutral it will start back up without turning the key. It makes a clicking noise if it isn't in neutral and it dies. It sounds like the starter is running when it dies if it doesn't restart.

Hard starting on Yamaha 130 2 stroke. Always starts easily with ether. Choke works well.


This can have some reasons:
1 clogged carburettors. Too less fuel means a hard start.
2 Worn spark plugs
3 Loss of compression... On a 2-stroke, measuring compression is not an exact science. Have throttle wide open. No spark plugs, check compression on all cylinders. They should be all within 1bar from eachother...

Not enough information, but there are two things I didn't read about you checking. Make sure the fuel quick connection on the engine (and possibly the fuel tank) is locked all the way in first, Then see if your fuel pump is working. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and, holding it in a gas can, have someone turn on the ignition. If It's an electric pump, it should start running fuel, if mechanical, they'll have to crank it a little to get fuel going. If you get plenty of fuel that way, your float in the carb could have gotten stuck, or something in the line got into it.

Reving in neutral does not mean the same thing as under load. If you need to pull 4500rpm under load and for an instant the load was gone, you would probably overrev to 6500. With the cover off and motor not running move the throttle to full forward. Look at your carbs and see if the throttle plates are wide open. If they are not all wide open take it back to the dealer. The throttle adjustment is off. You need the full range of travel from idle to topend.
