Hello. My name is Tan.
I don't understand what it is doing? "Goes wide open want cut off"
Do you mean you can't shut the engine off? When you pull back the throttle is won't cut off or do you mean won't slow down keeps revving?
So the problem is you can't turn the engine off with the key switch correct? Has nothing to do with how the engine runs correct?
Could I get the engine model number please?
Ok can you get to the wires on the back of the key switch? Does engine shut off if you pull the kill lanyard?
I need you to disconnect the black/yellow wire from the power pack # 20. Start engine and ground the black/yellow coming from the power pack. Does engine shut off?
Hello my name is Jason.
If the engine runs with the spark plug wires disconnected what is happening is the engine is running extremely lean. Lean means to much air and not enough fuel. There are 2 steps to solving this problem. 1. First is to have the carbs rebuilt and see if it makes a difference or not. If it does not, the engine is going to have an air leak someplace on it, allowing air to enter the engine. The engine block would need to be removed from the outboard, and be completely resealed. Does that all make sense to you?
I don't know how you want to leave this but that is where you stand on your end and what needs to be checked. I think that should do it. But I work for tips so I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
