1981 Honda 9.9, 4 stroke o/b, Idle problem
Last season, my first season as sail boater, had starting problem, 6-7 pulls. Replaced the fuel pump, past March. Motor now starts
1 pull, 2 pull max. Was able to motor from
winter storage to marina. Motor ran fine.
Have not left marina since then but have started motor each time I stopped at marina, 4-5 times. Last week, motor started normally but would not idle. Have not been able to idle motor since.
This problem coincides with connecting fuel line to metal line inside transom and also installing in-line filter between metal line and engine. Have removed metal line and filter,returning to original setup. Idling problem persists.
Prior to haulout, past Oct., had carburetor cleaned by Honda dealer.
