captbillc is on a distinguished road
a 3.9 HP volvo penta outboard of mine would run fine at high speed , but after a while at low speed it would stop. the spark plug would carbon up till it would not fire. i solved this by putting in a hotter running plug and narrowing the idle jet by putting a very small wire in it to restrict the flow. the float level was OK so that was not the problem.
