Outboard help in Dorset
Hi, my plans forecaster on the Medway were aborted due to engine failure of my yamaha 15 hp two stroke. Took it on weaver to test last week and ran fine for an hour maybe two, though at low speeds due to 8knot limit.
Started and stopped from cold and warm several times no problem. As I was packing infor day it cut out. Started first pull, then cut outa minute later. Thes happened about three times getting increasingly hard to restart till I gave up.
Got home, cleaned wet oily ish plugs, fired up no problem in bin. Tested several times, fine. Changed plugs for new, sprayed carb cleaner, checked fuel filter, pumping petrol through bulb, etc. all ok. Got on holiday, starred fine, idled five minutes great. Pulled out in river, cut out after 30 secs, and hard to start again. Did this three times before giving up. Plugs a bit wet but they would be.
Booked in swanage for a week and desperate not to waste holiday. Any advice welcome, either direct or referrals to mechanics in area.
