Re: Another (stupid?) outboard motor question
Dirty spark plugs change outboard behavior. I change them out every couple of years and clean them annually.
As a cheat, I will also occasionally spray ValvTects Marine Motor de-Carb through the intake. Smokes like a forest fire, while you're doing it, and its not just a dainty spray and you're done. You spray the whole can. I think it works, makes me feel like I did something anyway.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
