Re: Carb Problem?

If you have a big return clientele, you must be doing it right. When I said :



I didn't mean to imply that all "professionals" do sub-standard work.

Re: High speed ferry vs. race fleet

Golden Gate Transit has quite a number of ferries on the Bay, most of which are pretty fast & don't draw much water. I have seen them get on the horn any number of times, but didn't see them alter...

Just a guess. I took night courses in welding at the local high school shop. If the OP does a search, he can probably find a course. If he has basic mechanical knowledge & basic tool...

Don't know anything about "back east" but have been sailing & fishing in & out of San Francisco bay for many years.

I have never seen any commercial traffic attempt any avoidance moves. I have...

Re: Carb Problem?

First, not all "professionals" are experts, or conscientious . I am not even close to being an expert on anything. Fortunately, my Dad started teaching me how to work on engines about 68 years ago. I...

Re: Carb Problem?

How about:

1.Opening every hatch, port, or other opening you can

2. Turn off the gas at the tank

3. Sop up any gas that is visible

4. Disconnect from shore power

Re: Tohatsu 6HP Sailpro Stalling

Agree, try the easiest things first, like the filter. Maybe, also, an air leak at the hose connectors, double check all the clamps. Maybe it isn't venting properly, try loosening the filler cap,...

Re: North's ONE continuous q&a thread.

Forgot this, after you get it dialed in/fixed, suggest you drain the carb if you are not going to run it again within a week or so.

Re: North's ONE continuous q&a thread.

A new hose doesn't cost much, & is quick to change. If it runs OK at speed there are two possibilities:

1. The low speed fuel mixture may need to be adjusted. On my motors it is a small screw...

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

I forgot, I did us a smiley



My apologies if I offended anyone. We didn't have one, or radar on this boat in 1964 because we were cheap. Not having radar almost cost us our lives, bad decision...

Re: Perkins 4.108 making oil

"Mid range"? Interesting, I would have thought top end? Kind of looks more like the injector pump, although I don't know how? At about $650 for the injector pump, maybe try the electric lift pump...

Re: To drain or not to drain

My engine was a 1984 model, so it may have "proper" o rings, etc?

I had a 1964 9.5 HP Evinrude, before ethanol I think, ran it up to as few years ago, no problems. Hopefully hose particles would...

Re: Perkins 4.108 making oil

Curious:



High, low, mid-range? Two new pumps coming up? :D

Maybe try the cheapest one first? I would imagine the injector pump could be a bit pricey?

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

The Bay is one thing, but going aground, or getting too close "outside" however, can be, & often is, fatal. :(

Kind of like driving at night without headlights. A Fish finder for $100 is well...

Good points. I have been successful at doing what you described many times.
Had I known the Evinrude carb was $400 I would have pulled the old carb & brought it home with me for a try. But, due to...

Re: Perkins 4.108 making oil

That is a lot of fuel in the lube oil. As mentioned earlier, an electric lift pump or a new mechanical lift pump? if that fails, remove the injector pump & either replace it with new, or have a shop...

To drain or not to drain

There have been a number of threads related to ethanol gas left in carburetors. I thought my experiences may benefit someone? Sometime back, we downsized our fishing boat, a 1958 Glaspar Avalon with...

When you need just a little more power

When your little Yanmar doesn't quite cut it:

Re: Salts in the oil

Sounds like your analysis is good. If, as Delta suggested, you don't have a riser out of the exhaust manifold, It wouldn't hurt to install one, even something temporary. Anytime something is changed...
