i have a vire 7 inboard on my viking 28 sailboat.
the engine starts and runs great in neutral i can rev it uo all i want when i want to go somewhere and put it in gear it stalls after giving some gas as long as i ease up it will run.
i was told the high sped jet was clogged so i took it apart cleaned it put it together she ran great everything worked fine . the next day i star it up runs a bit rough have to get towed will not start even makes a funny coughing thumping sound when im tryin to start her.
im told to get carb proff. cleaned. $150.00 later put carb back on takes 15min of cranking and coughing to start she runs amazingly well for 7 minutes totally dies and will not even give a hint of starting. i have tried fresh gas new plugs, nothing works.
i have been looking at the vire 7 site for ideas but was wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar problem.
