Question about Boating
I bought a used boat that has set up for a little over 3 months. The boat idles rough and keeps fouling out plugs. Once I get over 1200RPMS it runs great. When looking at plugs after they foul, they are solid black. Seems like they are getting too much oil. The boat has an oil injection system. How should I go about diagnosing this problem? Any help is highly appreciated.
I would clean the carbs. I would bet that they are fouling out because your idle jet is plugged and that is causing the illusion of too much oil. If you clean out the idle jets then you should be able to run fine. You can also run the RPM's up pretty high and choke the engine out. Hold the choke until the engine is about to die and then release the choke. That causes a vaccum in the carb and can possibly **** the stuff out of your idle jet.
