Iím new to the Rib scene and have a question about my Yamaha F50 outboard that I was hoping someone would be able to help with with.
Iíve taken her out a couple of times on the water and although she starts great every time, and I donít notice any smoke initially. After iíve run her for a while, the white smoke that comes from the back of the engine is quite noticeable. Just wondering if this is normal on these carb engines or not? Canít say iíve seen many outboards smoking? I have taken a couple of videos and uploaded them to show what it looks like after iíve run it ashore for a couple of mins.
The videos are here:
Any advice or help greatly appreciated. I was wondering if it were a stuck thermostat or water passages needed a good clean through meaning sheís creating steam but when I had her running for a couple of hours at the weekend in the water she didnít overheat at all??
