New (to me) engine teething problems
Thanks to the help on this forum got a 80hp 2 stroke late Ď80s I think, on the rib and seems to run well.
Few teething problems
1. Engine has a bit of a sneeze at idle and doesnít like to idle as well as being hard to start. Going to clean carbs and reassemble anyone know what the stock mixture screw setting is roughly as a starting point
2. When in reverse engine likes to lift itself up out of the water (not much at low RPMs) but due to the issue with idling have to give it a bit of wellie to keep running so that may be the cause of this
3. The volts seem to get very high once today they were registering 15.2v!
4. At WOT after around 2 minutes it sends a constant alarm and goes into a sort of limp mode. This settles after turning it off for a few minutes. It pumps water well and doesnít seem to be too hot.
Itís a premix version. 110psi top cylinder 107 middle 105 bottom. All spark plugs appear a healthy colour.
Any advice would be appreciated. Struggling to find any manuals either
