I know that the issues I had would have nowt to do with changing gearbox oil or spraying WD 40. I either had a faulty oil pump or perhaps a build up of 2 stroke oil in the carbs.

Nothing wrong with asking a question even if you are an expert. We can all learn you know. Except you of course.


You know Pikey when I first came on here you attacked me as you do others (Read your little avitar) and thought you were clever. Keep going I am sure you feel you can beat most people... we will see

There's a reason that people treat their boat engines with kid gloves - they're much easier to work on at home than broken down offshore.
Claiming much more experience than others on this forum is not a good idea, they may know a lot more than you.
Before you ask, I know all about gas turbines and jet engines. If you want to go old fashioned, I can go through triple expansion engines as well.
Also, what has that got to do with winterising an outboard?

Mariner 60HP 2 Stroke ELPTO Smokes huge on Initial Start

I've read it, as usual on here it started quite simple and then escalated, very entertaining.

so you do in fact now claim to do 3 out of the 4 steps you said were "quite frankly [not] necessary on a 2 stroke"

Carry on posting however as I am sure you will
Its not really your decision is it?

Oh and I forgot to add to the list 12 or more Gas Turbine Jet Engines... Know anything about those do you !
I'm not sure how that would in any way be relevant to helping you understand your smokey two stroke. If you only wish to receive advice from professionally qualified engineers I'd suggest you get your credit card out and pop to your local Mariner dealer. If you want to continue asking questions on this forum then I'd suggest you once again refresh yourself of the expectation about courtesy here and stop attacking anyone who disagrees with you.

There's a reason they're called 2-smokes!

Hello All

Now that I have used the Boat several times I have to report that there was nothing wrong with the engine. It was just a build up of 2 stroke oil in the carbs.
