Question about Boating

1 Answer

The engine is an Evinrude 70 horse, 4 stroke out board and it has trouble starting and staying started. It has very low power even at full throttle when we get it started. It seems like it is not getting gas, but the gas is flowing through the hose. It was back firing on us. It also idles funny. What do we need to do as far as getting it to run properly? Thank you

    Thanks Thomas,
    I was able to convince my husband already to do that, he did and it seems to be running better, we will water test today.

I have a 1998 model E25RMECA I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE GAS TO USE IN IT. AND IF IT IS 2 CYCLE OR 4CYCLE.


I found a mixture of sites for the information
one owner of a 1998 25 hp evinrude says that it is a 2 stroke with a fuel mix ratio of 50:1 as 25:1 is a bit smokey
another site says that the recommended octane fuel rating is 87 although it might run better on 91
best advice is to find an evinrude service dealer and get the right information as the later 25 hp units are etec engine which will be 4 strokes

Have a Mccolluch mac10-10s have trouble with high\low speed how do you go abour setting them


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problem. Turn H and L jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out 1-1/2 turns CCW. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on, and adjust the H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for better idle, but which still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. If adjusted too far (lean), the engine will 'gasp' when throttled. Set the idle speed screw so that the engine continues to run, but the chain doesn't try to turn. Hope this helps!

On a mcculloch 3200 what is the high and low settings of the needel vales on the carb?


Make sure the air cleaner is clean. Turn both jet needles CW to stops (lightly), then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. The engine should start and run--allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes no load, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to follow the throttle. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't turn and the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

How do I adjust the carburetor on a Poulan 38cc chainsaw? Someone has messed with the low and high adjustment


Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Be sure to check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Start the engine and allow to warm up--pull the throttle full on and adjust H jet needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is reached when the engine 4-strokes at speed, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L jet needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

Chain saw carburator settings for husqvarna 61


Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H jet screw CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment occurs when the engine is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This gives best power and lowest heat. Release the throttle and adjust L jet CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

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.
