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.

  • 1975 johnson 40hp outboard motor flooded?

    took the boat out today got it to the water ran good at low idle. then i got out of the no wake zone. i gave it all she had. we were going at a good pace. got about half way across the lake then the engine spit and sputtered and stalled out. tried to start it back up again and it turned over but didnt start. so i took the cover off the motor and had my friend try to start it. it didnt start so i told him to stop trying. when he turned the key to the off position gas shot out of the carb. what would that mean im thinking flooded. how would i fix it. i took the carb off when i brought it home. and looked at the float and everything seemed fine. i rebuilt the carb about 2 months ago when i bought the boat so it has all new parts.

    Were you choking the snot out of it while trying to start? That could explain the fuel.

      no i do that when i go to first start it it starts up easy when it is warmed up.

      and onther thing i noticed was after i took the carb apart and put it back together i pumped the bulb up and gas poured out of the carb.
