Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Have you done a compression test on the engine, and if so, what are the numbers?
Are you sure that it is running on all 6 cylinders currently?
What size it the boat and the prop?
Yes I am
When was the last time it ran correctly?
We do either by phone or in the internet. Which ever you wish.
What was done when the carbs were cleaned?
How was this done? There are several ways to do this.
Ok, Has the timing been checked at WOT to see if it is advancing?
Has a spark out out test been done?
Wide open Throttle
Remove the plugs, advance the throttle to WOT, hook a timing light to the top cylinder then have a helper crank the engine over while you shoot the timing at the flywheel. Should be around 24* ATDC.
Just reply back to me as you have been doing tonight.
Adjust the trigger to advance the timing.
While you are at it, do a spark test on all 6 cylinders. Make sure that they are all firing.
Personally would not reply on that hour meter. you do not know when it was added or if it works.
Thanks. Talk to you then.
