SOURCE: Chrysler 70 HP outboard motor dies when pushing throttle

I have found that 99 percent of the time when this happens it is carb related. It is very possible that you picked a a small piece of grit or trash in the high speed jet of one, or both, of your carbs. I would be willing to bet that pulling the carbs and cleaning them will resolve your problem. I am almost positive that will fix your problem, mainly because it sounds like you've already tried everything else. I had this same problem last season, and what had happened was I left the vent open on my fuel tank, we got a shower, and I pulled just a small bit of water into the carb and that was it, she would not do anything over idle until I pulled the carbs and cleaned them. i even put the water muffs on it and let it run in the yard for about an hour thinking that it would burn the water out, but i was wrong. Anyway, clean the carbs and i think you'll be in good shape, Good Luck.

SOURCE: boat won't plane

Check your prop hub. If you have a larger motor there are rubber bushings in the hub which can slip. This is a safety feature like shear pins. You may need to rebush the prop.

You also need the proper length motor for your transom. And you need enough power to overcome the drag and weight of a loaded boat. Check and see if the angle settings for the locking pin will provide an upward thrust to the hull and not plow the hull down.

Evinrude 60 hp tracker dies below 1100 rpm, will not idel. cleaned carbs. didnt help. runs great under throtle. compression on all 3 cylinders 121 to 125. why cant I get it to idel.

the idle circuit in the carby still has a blockage that is preventing it from allowing the fuel through
compression is good
possible that the ignition timing is not correct
at this point I would suggest that the carby be overhauled by a Evinrude service shop as rubber from hoses , fuel pump breaks down and fine particles get into jets and passages and block up the holes

Getting water in carbs not from fuel tank it happens when I put it in forward it's a 140 evinrude looper

Your engine should be sealed enough to prevent this..unless you have the engine mounted so low it idles under water...???.. There is a seal that goes between the lower cowl pieces and the engine, a seal around the engine cover(cowl)...and seals that surround all wires and cables.

70 HP evinrude 4 stroke outboard (pontoon boat). New spark plugs all connections good. Will only do idle speed put I. Forward or reverse won't gain speed

I had the same problem with mine, let me see if I can find the picture I took.

Just above the red arrow on the choke, the linkage has to be firmly clipped in that little black clip. Unless that is in place, you are only throttling one carburetor! Drove me crazy trying to find the answer to that one and it happened after the marina engineers had replaced a leaking fuel hose. Mine was a two stroke, but I bet the linkages are the same to the carbs.

Evinrude "high thrust" 1998 model just bought boat

Hi, replace the sparkplugs and the carby(s) will probably need stripping down and cleaning as stale fuel leaves a residue in the bowl and jets. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have a evinrude 48hp 2 cylinder oler model, that will start when you cover the carbs, but will not idle regularly, but full throttle it will run misty

You're not getting enough fuel. Check if there is a fuel filter than needs changed or if your gasoline is contaminated.

1989 200hp evirude wont idle in water idels fine out of the water

I would readjust your idle mixture screw with engine in gear and on the water at an idle. That is a common problem after rebuilding carbs. It will run diferently under a load in the water. Just tie up to the dock and adjust them there.

Engine will not stay running unless i pump the ball...

Going to sound silly, but is the fuel filter properly installed? I've seen this happen when the fuel filter was installed upside down. In other words, the arrow showing flow of fuel was pointed in the wrong direction. If the fuel ball is collapsing, it could be a vacuum lock problem. Try it with the gas cap loosened and see if that helps - it could be 'too airtight' and creating a vacuum, which cuts off fuel supply.
