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.

  • Carb and timing tutorial.

    I just downloaded a video to you tube titled carb and timing tutorial showing how to synchronize timing and carbs. I'll be damned if I can access it myself but perhaps you fellows can.

        Got your link address wrong Frank.

        You need a 't' before the D (after the youtu.be/), and the 1 at the end should be a lower case L.

        Copy and paste is your friend for this stuff.

        It should be: http://youtu.be/tDoR64jP5l8

              Hi all, I made a video to add some detail to timing on a force 120 from 1992 (although the process is the same for dynamically setting the timing advance on many motors). I need to do some light editing (kept calling the starter the throttle, etc.) but none the less it shows clearly how to ground your spark plug wires and how to jump the safety switch. When I was researching how to do this, that specific info was sort of hard to find, and being new to boat motors I didn't want to screw anything up.

              How to set timing on outboard motor - YouTube

              Hopefully this is a good supplement to franks video!

                Great videos thanks for posting them. I have a follow up question though, when setting the throttle link initially at what position should the eccentric on the carb link be? fully out or in? I'm not really sure of the purpose of this eccentric is either!!.....Thanks..Paul
                I'm a dummy just watched it again and figured it out!! sorry.................
