I know this is an old Thread but Im very concerned,
I have a Bukh 10hp and yesterday I got caught in a squall on port Phillip bay and tried to run her at 2700rpm and could only get 2200rpm and oil, fuel was coming out the exhaust, its like she has no power. Starts fine, idles but puts out black stuff and I cant get up the revs. suggested adjusting stop solenoid what do you guys recon is it a major problem and should I get a mechanic to look $$$ or be tight and run it till something happens!!! I do prefer option 1 but would like to have an idea first.
