Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hi Paul, my name is***** am reviewing your question and will respond momentarily.
Okay I read everything. Is there a history on this engine and boat combination that you can share with me? How long have you owned it for, has it ever been any better or different for you in the past? Or did you just buy it, and this is the way it is?
Do you know what the boat is rated for horsepower wise?
Do you know if the shaft length of the outboard is correct for the boat? Do you happen to have any pictures you can share with me showing how the outboard is mounted to the boat?
That will work. Take some pictures from the back of the boat so I can see how the motor is mounted, and how high or low it is in relation to the bottom of the boats bottom.
What I needed to see what the relationship between the propeller and the bottom of the boat. Are you able to, or do you have any pictures with the boat on a trailer?
If you look at the fins above the propeller. Are those above, even, or below the keel/bottom of the boat?
To be honest i'l be loggin off in a few. We can pick this up in the morning if it works for you.
Good morning. Does the boat have a tachometer on it so that we can see what the top engine RPMS are with the boat going at full speed?
Okay spark output needs to be checked in order to see if it's firing on all cylinders. Do you have a timing light to hook up to each plug wire to see if it flashes or not?
All you would need to do is start the engine up, and hook up the timing light to each plug wire one at a time, and then hit the button on the light and see if it flashes or not. Flash means spark, no flash means no spark. Let me know if it's showing spark on all or not and we can take it from there.
Okay so we have compression and spark. Click this link to pull up a picture, its one of the ones you sent me. http://f01.justanswer.com.s3.amazonaws.com/qcyTBAOV/BAD5C52B-A750-4A09-88E4-7A5260924FFD.JPG
Is the plate that the hydrofoil is bolted on to even with the bottom of the boat, or is it higher, or lower than the bottom of the boat?
