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.

Check that your prop and boat bottom is clean!
Most likely unburnt fuel due to overloaded engine.

If the prop and bottom are clean suspect the exhaust elbow. The exhaust is as important as the intake and if restricted by carbon build-up, which is common, the engine will do exactly as yours does.
