Question about Light Outboard Motor Boat Bass Fishing Saltwater Base
I replaced the spark plugs, check for water in the gas and cleaned the fuel filter. The fuel is flowing to the carb.
It will be hard to start, when it does start it runs for a few minutes at almost full throttle. When I try to idle down it dies. Then will not restart.
It sounds like the float is sticking in the carb. Since the carb is higher than the fuel tank it pulls the fuel in by vaccum of the engine. when running at high rpms, it can burn the fuel thats flowing into the carb, when you idle down, the bowl of the carb is filling up with fuel faster than the engine can burn it and causing it to flood. Then when it shuts off at idle it does not want to start back up because it is flooded. To make a long stary short, pull the carb and give it a good cleaning and your problems should be solved.
