Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Fair Price.

    Mod, if this is posted in the wrong group please delete. I'm looking at a Chrysler short shaft electric start 9.9 kicker. It's a later one and looks to be in great shape judging by the photos. What's a fair price to pay for this? Thanks.

      Electric start!! That doubles the value.
      Not many of those were made.

          Here is a photo of it. I'll be looking at it today. Older gent, he's asking 400.

            Personally, I'll stay in the range of no more than $300. And the main reason for that is not only because of its age but because of the lack of parts being obsolete.

              Hello Jiggz, I didn't get to see your reply before I went and picked it up but I did get it for $300. The electric start only works sometimes, (bad starter?) It does start right up with the rope. The priming bulb empties out and she will die. If you keep the bulb up it'll run all day. Fuel pump diaphragm?

                  Yup, most likely a fuel pump diaphragm problem. But then if the fuel pump is not working properly, then the priming bulb should not be emptying. In short, the most likely cause is there is leak between the suction side of the fuel pump and the suction line from the tank. Or it could just be as easy as clogged or closed vent from the fuel tank or faulty check valve from the bulb itself.

                  If priming bulb collapses, it's most likely a clogged or closed vent in the fuel tank or faulty check valve in the priming bulb.

                  As for the starter, it would not be surprising to see that starter has not been opened and cleaned in at least 2 decades!

                    WD 40 in the switch and clean the contacts.
                    $300 good buy!

                      Jiggz I changed to 3 different hoses with bulbs and it still did the same thing. I could see through the gas cap opening on the tank that it might be sucking air where the pick up tube goes through the tank. This tank is an old plastic one that is kind of beat up looking, the tube in it is clear plastic? The tank itself says "Honda" on it. As long as you give the bulb a few squeezes every so often it'll run all day. The higher the throttle, the more squeezes required to keep it running. I may need to buy one of those modern plastic ones. JerryJerry05, I think that the starter motor is bad. If you turn the starter motor gear with a screw driver To a different spot it will work sometimes when you push the start button. Is it possible that the starter has a dead spot? All the connections on the starter are clean. I found replacements on Ebay but have not ordered yet. I also noticed that the starter sounds weak. I changed the lower gear lube and looks good. (they used regular vent and drain screw on these!) Wish that they would have used them on my 85HP. Pulled the spark plugs and compression on both are good 115lbs and equal.

                        Squeezing the primer bulb means the fuel pump is faulty. From your initial post, you mentioned the primer bulb as collapsing which means the fuel pump is working. But now you're mentioning it requires squeezing the primer bulb to keep it running, which means the fuel pump is faulty. I say, open and inspect the fuel pump.

                          Jiggz, I will inspect the fuel pump. At the same time I will also look into replacing the starter motor as this requires removing a lot of stuff on top off the engine to get to either one. Thank you for your reply.

                              Update - Starter is good. I pulled it and ran it off of a battery. It ended up that it is the neutral interlock switch. There is no way to adjust it and the cam is pushing it in. it you put a small screw driver between the cam lobe and switch it makes contact. I'll need to locate one for it. pete j, Thank you for your reply. The tank vent is open. Thinking of just replacing the fuel pump diaphragm and gaskets, they are reasonable in price and when was the last time it was replaced? I have a new tank for it at some vacation property, I just need to go and get it with time allowing. Thank you all for your help, I will keep updating as I finish this project up.
