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.

  • Stalls when accelerating comming off idle

    1979 Johnson 55hp- can sometimes accelerate with choking . Carbs were
    rebuilt. Compression is 135/135 psi . Runs perfect at high speeds. Should I change power packs next. Can someone advise me?

    Sounds like either a restricted idle orifice on one or both carbs or a link/sych issue with respect to the position of the throttle link roller and cam.

      Carbs were rebuilt.
      choking to accelerate is fuel delivery, don't discount the rebuilt carbs still being a problem but check everything from fuel tank to carbs first.

        if you have not, replace all fuel line with alcohol resistant lines, due to ethanol in the fuel. ethanol softens the inside of old fuel lines, handling the old lines, causes the interior to sluff off, and clogs the carb you just cleaned.

          Thanks. I also ordered a fuel pump rebuild kit. Does anyone know if there is a fuel filter somewhere on the motor that should be changed?

              1979 johnson 55 hp
              Rebuilt carbs.
              Changed fuel pumps and fuel line from tank.
              Changed one ignition coil and plugs again.
              Replaced power pack.

              Still bogs at low idle and just coming off idle.
              Tolerable when i mess with the manual choke.

              Mechanic says , " the could be internal problem, such as cylinder wall or piston out of round, therefore not enough vacuum to pull fuel at low end. Is this possible?
              He also only cleaned low idle orifice and off idle orifice. Should they be replaced?
              Thanks for your advise.

                  Won't get to check link and sinc until next weekend.
                  Do you think this year engine is worth rebuilding?
                  Can anyone rebuild or do you need special tools?
                  Thank you again for your advice. I'll let you know how i make out.
