Re: Yamaha f4a outboard stalling

Paul, I have checked all the carburettor/hoses and they all seem good, can the symptoms I have described not be explained by a dirty carburettor alone?

Re: Yamaha f4a outboard stalling

Re: Yamaha f4a outboard stalling

Thanks for your reply, however, I'm unfamiliar with some of the terminology that you have used (apologies).

I can see two things that can alter the carburettor. The throttle cable and the choke...

Re: Outboard no water through tell tale

Yes my thermostat appears to be working correctly then :) thanks.

I can get it going with the choke pulled out and after a while it wants to stall I can stop it stalling by revving it up.

If I...

Re: Outboard no water through tell tale

Okay I've replaced the thermostat and it's fixed it! Thanks for your help! The tell tale stream should be constant whether the engine is cold or warm right?

Another problem I'm havin is with the...

Re: Outboard no water through tell tale

Just ran it again and there is a no more than a dribble of water out of the tell tale that after a minute becomes very hot.

Is this normal?

Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail

I removed the impeller housing and flushed directly up the tube that runs up the outboard.... And still no flow.

I'm at a complete loss with this one.

Is there anywhere in the engine...

Hi,

I have replaced the impeller.

I have had the cooling system blasted with the garden hose, but even with mains pressure running there was still no...

Re: Can you run your engine without a water intake

Okay, I didn't consider the hot exhaust option.

The reason why I would want to run the engine is that I have recently got the boat and wanted to gain some confidence in that the engine is a...

Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail

minnewaska,

Thanks for your reply, is there anyway you could just fill the oil up from the top screw rather than using the pump?

Thanks again

Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail

Typically 90w lower gear unit oil. if you look on the side of the leg, just above the prop, you should see two screws. You open the top to allow air to enter as it drains from the bottom. Then you...

Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail

Thanks for your replies,


Out of interest does the prop area of the outboard have a different oil supply to the main engine?

If so what type of oil is in the prop area of the engine? or a...

Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail

Thanks for your replies,

If the motor has not been used for 5 years could the impella not be sort of stuck with salt deposits and just need freeing?

I hear a lot about a blocked coolant pipe,...

Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail

I have not ran the engine in gear and only for 10 secs in neutral.

But I don't believe this should effect the tell tail?
