Hi Ricky, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Engines do not like to troll for long periods of time. They load up with fuel and can get themselves into a semi-flooding condition. Before you take off under power, that flood needs to be cleared first. That being said, before accelerating, have you tried running it in neutral and bringing the rpms up to 2000 or so for 15 seconds prior to accelerating under power?
Hello Rocky, my name is***** will assist you with this.
I have a few questions for you, why was the powerhead replaced? When was that?
Can I get the serial number of the engine?
Did you feel the motor to see it was hot?
When you stop the motor, do you see any grass be released from the water pick-ups?
Does this issue happen when you need to stop the motor and clear the prop?
