Question about Light Outboard Motor Boat Bass Fishing Saltwater Base

1 Answer

2005 Mercury 225 HP 2 stroke propeller hub gets jammed up with weeds which sees to be causing overheating problem. Weeds seem to be wrapping between the lower unit housing and the propeller. Some one has said that they sell a filler ring to fit between the prop and the lower unit that will eliminate this problem. Does any one know the proper name for the part and where it is available?

I would suggest staying out of the weeds if it's such a BIG problem . I second or 2 in reverse usually clears them off

1980s Suzuki 30 hp 2 stroke. I took it out to the lake pushed throttle a quarter of the way it was fine went half throttle and it seems to slip out of gear and revs high ? Back to quarter it goes ?


Hi Tommy

This condition is almost always caused by a spun propeller hub.
(See the link below)

We had the same issue a few years back with our Honda 15XL. Replaced the prop and the problem was solved.

Hope this helps you out.

WEEDS ARE WRAPPING AROUND THE MOTOR SHAFT ABOVE THE TRIMMER LINE DISPENSER CAUSING THE MOTOR TO SHUT DOWN AFTER 30 SECONDS OF RUN TIME DUE TO INCREASED FRICTION ON THE SHAFT


Hi,
That is a common problem with many trimmers... not much you can do about it...except be more carefull and go slower so the weeds fall down before getting caught by the line and getting twisted around the shaft...

How long should I wait to determine if my application of Weed B Gone is 'working'?


Weeds treated with Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer Concentrate will show visible signs that the product is working within 1 to 2 weeks. A repeat application may be necessary in 2 to 3 weeks for hard-to-control weeds. Initial signs that the product is working are wilting and yellowing of tender new growth. Necrosis (tissue death) then spreads to the rest of the plant. The weeds wither, turn brown and die.
Sometimes it appears that weeds are still growing and going to seed even after they have been treated with Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer Concentrate. These seeds will be sterile because the chemical will have reached them within 1-2 days of treatment. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact Ortho @ 1-800-225-2883

Sprayed yard two weeks ago and appears chickweed is spreading. No sign that the Ortho Weed b Gon for chickweed is working . The chickweed is actually blooming with tiny white flowers. I live in VA.


I am sorry that the Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer did not control the common chickweed as expected.

The active ingredient in Ortho Chickweed Clover and Oxalis Killer is Triclopyr, Triclopyr is very efficient at killing tough to control weeds, but it does take a lot longer for it to show results that it is working.

Weeds treated with Ortho Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer will show visible signs that the product is working under optimal conditions ( usually 65-85 degrees F) within 1 to 2 weeks. A repeat application may be necessary in 2 to 3 weeks for hard-to-control weeds. Initial signs that the product is working are wilting and yellowing of tender new growth. Necrosis (tissue death) then spreads to the rest of the plant. The weeds wither, turn brown and die.Sometimes it appears that weeds are still growing and going to seed even after they have been treated with Weed-B-Gon Chickweed, Clover & Oxalis Killer. These seeds will be sterile because the active ingredient will have reached them within 1-2 days of treatment.

If you give it another week and still see no yellowing, twisting or curling, you may want to reapply. If that still doesnt work, or you have any further questions give us a call at 1-800-225-2883 to see what else we can do.

Need to know how to mix round up and water


Annual and perennial weeds can be controlled with a mixture of 6 fluid ounces of Roundup (12 tablespoons) per gallon of water. Small weed seedlings can be killed with half this strength: 3 ounces per gallon. When using Roundup Super Concentrate, mix 2.5 ounces (5 tbsp.) with a gallon of water to control most weeds and a half-strength solution for small weeds. Roundup Pro Concentrate is the strongest solution available. Spray a mixture of 2 ounces (4 tbsp.) on weeds and half that amount of concentrate on emerging plants. Since Roundup doesn't discriminate between weeds and other plants, use the least amount of herbicide possible to protect desirable vegetation.

Loss of speed. ..upon acceleration over approx 25/30


If you are achieving proper max RPM but not achieving peak MPH, the prop is cavatating. That means it is aerating the water around the impeller. The most common cause of this is debris (rope, weeds) wrapped around the prop shaft. With the lanyard key in your pocket, look up the intake screen for the jet pump and see what is wrapped around the prop shaft. Once you remove that, your MPH should be right back to where it was.

Newly planted red apple iceplant but weeds are taking over


I have heard of two possible choices, the first is a product called "Killer" sold at Armstrongs Gargen centers that may kill the grass, but not the Ice Plants. Check out - http://www.garden-counselor-lawn-care.com/kill-crabgrass.html
and

Good Luck, I Have not used it, but going to in the next couple of days, seems to be the best choice I can find so far.
