re the fuel consumption,we will need to agree to disagree on that and also the hours the person will use the the rib as I can not see where he stated this but if he did and I am wrong on the this I am sorry.

not looking to start a war here either

Dave
ps if you think my claims are bold have a look at Outboard Engine for sale , 2 x Yamaha 150hp outboards - Boats And Outboards
no war intended either, just trying to offer a differing view.

btw-while i'm here, some of the best engines i've seen are 20 years old and never get serviced. perhaps i'm going about this boating lark all wrong servicing mine :-)

cheers

So after a thorough strip down, clean and rebuild of the carbs yesterday and a general clean up, the engine started and ran perfectly

Only problem is that it wouldn't start using the battery, it required the use of the manual pull cord. So I'm thinking I've either got a battery that's not giving out enough juice or a lazy starter motor?

Any thoughts?
Cheers.

I should watch yer manners wiLlfie - a man who pull starts a 200hp V6 is a force to be reckoned with.

get a fresh battery on it directly, not via jump leads before doing anything else.

cheers

ive had battery cables fail - quick check is to connect the battery as normal then put a jump lead from the neg to engine block to give it another earth.

Glad you got it running. My '86 V4 did the same, lazy starting, it was the negative cable that burnt out. If you check the length of the cables you should find a hard lump which you can't flex or is crunchy!!

On another point, my motor is old and a bit tatty but it still works, and works well! I spoke to a Suzuki salesman at southampton about replacing it with a newer one and he thought I was mad, He'd rather spend the money on fuel in my V4. I haven't looked at another engine since!!

But if I did have the money......
