Re: Carb Problem?

Yes, it is like cooking with wine- very easy to add too much!
Thanks for the tips, not giving up on this thing yet.
Would it be safe to disconnect the fuel line from one side of the engine side of...

Re: Carb Problem?

Update: took the carb apart and examined it closely. The float was indeed functioning. I also pushed the float down in a cup of water to see if it had any leaks. No leaks. Put it back together and...

Re: Carb Problem?

Pulled the carb this weekend. Was easier than I thought.

Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

True story- wind was out of the Northeast at about 10 knots yesterday, a perfect, sunny afternoon. Out of the 50 or so boats in our marina, only one boat went out. A Macgregor with a huge outboard on...

Re: Carb Problem?

I went down again this weekend. The smell in the boat wasn't quite as bad, but when the bilge pump kicked on there was more residue on top of the water when it exited the boat. I know now that...

We bought the 3+ and it is pretty neat. But it has taken this lonely bitter old dude a while to figure it out. I have a hard time getting the blue light to stop blinking. I spent an hour cursing at...
