Honda 50 issues
Hey fellows, been absent for a while, but have been having some issues with the Honda 50 four stroke on my 4 m Searider.
The problem is that when its idling, or cruising along at a slow RPM, it acts liek its not getting fuel, the head is shaking, it will stall out under load, etc. If I can get it into gear and hit the gas and get up on plane, the engine runs fine and has normal power and speed.
I've tried a few different gas tanks, with no avail. If I can pump the bulb long and hard enough, sometimes it will start running fine and smooth like its supposed to, for a few seconds, then back to normal. Is there a fuel filter that could be getting clogged? It seems like if this were the case it wouldn't be running fine up on plane?
Another problem that I don't think could be related is that my shift linkage cable has a kink or something in it, so i am replacing that this afternoon. This makes it very hard to shift etc. This dosen't seem like it could be related as the other issue seems to be a fuel supply issue.
Thanks a lot guys! Happy Boating!
