How do you manage to stop the engine without a kill switch?

This is begining to sound more like a blocked slow running jet again, this is exactly the same as the problems we have had.

There's a red button on the front which you push to stop it......

Idle mixture problem, the same as Bruce Hawkins.

Do a search.

I am almost certain it is a blocked slow jet. Should be quite easy to take the carb of on that.

Might be worth checking your fuel tank for bits - particularly if its a rusty metal fuel tank. Even the smallest bit of grit can ruin a good days ribbing!

Me edit button has gone again!

Bruce, I'm ever so sorry. Hawsker not Hawkster or Hawkins...I should stop posting after midnight.


Anyway, Tim, Tom, Tum, take out the idle mixture screw, look into the hole to check for debris, put your finger over the hole and fire up the motor. If it'll run long enough, rev it firmly once and then switch off. Replace the screw and set the idle mixture. Then report back to us for the next suggestion.

Stalling

I believe I had the same problem with a Mariner 65, when I travel very slowly, idle or go nearly full throtle the motor sort of stutters and then slumps and if I don't adjust the throttle quick enough it cuts out.

It has been suggested the holes in the carb are pretty blocked. I would like any reccommendations on any mobile outboard servicing/tuning company people may have, been trying to call TW Marine Southampton, but he seems to no longer be in business.

Cheers

Right, I had a go at fixing this engine this evening and heres wat happened:

Tested the plugs - they had a nice bright spark, so I can rule them out.

I tried fresh fuel (my tanks are plastic BTW) but this didn't have an affect. Took the fuel filter in the engine out and checked it. There were a few odd bits of crap in it but nothing major.

Took the carberttor off. Removed various covers and things but there was no evidence of any crap here (saying that I'm no expert in this field; I assume I was looking in the right places......where is the jet/what does it look like??). Put it back on again but still suffered from the same problem.

I'm out of ideas now. Any more suggestions before I book it into a Mariner man?

Tim
