Spluttery Honda 4stroke

Hi everybody

Hope you are all starting to get out on the water.............brrrrrrr

On my way home from work this afternoon, I throttled back, perhaps a bit too quickly, to about 5kts from 15 and my engine started spluttering (Honda 45hp 4stroke).

I thought it was fuel starvation, but my line was connected securely both ends and the bulb firm. The fuel tank vent was also open.

Any ideas on what this might be? A bit of dirt in the fuel got through perhaps?
Hope its not too terminal or long lasting as the boat is used most days.

Did you have a wave swamp you from behind when you throttled back suddenly ?

New problem......................!

Buzzer alarm keeps going off intermitantly then constantly after a while.
I have sufficient oil, and water is jetting out.
According to the owners manuel, the alarm will sound and the Green light will go out if engine temperature is high and Red light comes on if oil pressure is low.
My green light stays on and the buzzer still sounds! grrrrrrr
Could it be a dodgy buzzer?

Hi Bryan
When I owned that engine it did exactly the same thing when I first used it. I had it serviced and was told that it was something to do with a "Rectifyer" what ever that is. They fitted a new one and hey presto it stopped??
Something to do with the battery overcharging they said??
regards
Martyn

Bryster if you need a new rectifier try E Bay. I got one for my very old engine for £11 from the US E Bay. Took about a week.

You might want to get yourself a manual or even check out I Boats. Do a search on your Honda and the rectifier. They will tell you how to check if its U/S and probably what caused it.

If the rectifier is shot then you will find that your Tacho probably won't work and your battery won't be charging.

I'm not familiar with your engine but the guys on Iboat should be able to help you.

Regards Nick R.

I posted something very similar a few months back. Haven't had any light on it yet but it seems to have cured itself now. Interesting if it is a rectifier problem because this boat has twin 50's. It could be that only one engine is charging the battery???

May have to get the fault-ometer out.
