1981 Honda 9.9, 4 stroke o/b, Idle problem
ranj65; I used to have a Honda 7.5 that one day wouldn''t idle. The carb. float was stuck. A gentle tap on the side of the carb cured it. Be advised, you''re not helping your engine by running it at the dock in neutral. Any engine, gas or diesel, likes to be run under a load to really warm up and burn off deposits. At the dock, put it in gear and run it at a fast idle for twenty minutes at least twice a month.
