Honda BF130 How fast telltale flow

I have a Honda BF130, the tell tale water is just that a tell tale, comes out at what I thought was a reasonable/fair rate.

Last week I was out on a Rib with a Honda BF75 and the tell tale and that was literally jetting out into the sea at high pressure.

Anyone know whether they should be similar or is there a litres/min measure anywhere?



Cheers

Was yours at idle, while the other was plugging along?

My 40 has a relatively weak stream at idle (which occasionally varies, probably due to blockage), but does fine while running.

Honda 130 HP Telltale flow

On a honda 130 the telltale flow before coming out of the tube is used as part of the cooling on the fuel seperator and the tube has a plastic block which often needs cleaning as it reduces in size at this point the best way to clean it out using a small bit of stainless steel wire or something you can rod through hope you can understand this...

Flushing the engine with fresh water helps but suprisingly doesn't get all the salt out. Spent a week on the Thames with a rib a few years back and was astonished to find that having got home and servicing the engine there was still salt around the thermostats after a week of running in fresh water.

So do flush the engine out with the muffs, and once a year service the pump, thermostats, tell tale etc.

I took the cover off my thermostat the other day and it was totally blocked with salt. Might be worth doing this....(it's made a big difference to mine)
