Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
What is the make and model of the engine?
Yes I am here. I need to know what engine you have.
Got it thanks. When was the last time that it made full power?
Ok, the first thing to look at is the fuel in the boat, make sure that it has no water in it. If it is good, and since the engine has been sitting, I feel that the carbs are going to be gummed up. This will not allow the engine to get the fuel that it requires to get up to speed. The carbs will need to come off the engine, be totally taken apart, cleaned , including all jets. Then reassembled using all new rings and new needles. Attached, I have included a diagram of the carbs.
Part 23 are the needles. A shop would charge at least 2 hrs of labor to do the carbs. Then you are looking at the parts as well.
47 would not need to come out, 58 is part of the fuel pump kit, I cannot locate 48. There is not really any products that you could add to your fuel to washout the carbs. Since the jets are not flowing fuel now, any products would not get to them.
