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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

    What is this engine not doing that you want it to?How is it running bad?How did those screws get out of whack or are they even the source of this delema?There is no element to be concerned with as is the case with most marine equipment.

        Hi C-Raven, it sounds like you have the famous hole in your exhaust pipe, with the cowling on the leaking exhaust is fouling up the fresh air flow to the carb, remove the cowling and ta---da, fresh air engine runs good.Feel free to phone me if you like 514-5272, parts are cheap time wise its about 2 hours for me, cant say for you, but it is an easy fix, if this is the problem.Cheers

            Sorry dont have the number at home here, if your buying the parts from S&G, Bill should be able to get the number of the o-ring for you, being a static seal your old one, maybe okay, I just replace them as routine. Dont forget to make sure the camshaft has not turned & #1 is still TDC when you re-install that belt.P.S. Are you in sales or shipping at your shop?
