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.

  • Evinrude Shuts off after 10 -15 minutes running, and will not refire

    I have a 1994 or 95 150 hp Evinrude outboard that shuts off after about 10-15 minutes. It fires just fine when cold but after running a little bit it just completely shuts off, no sputtering or anything just dead. It will not restart for a while afterwards, After giving it 30-45 minutes it will restart and run great for a little bit then does it all over again. I dont believe its a fuel issue since it doesnt sputter at all it just completely dies as if we turned the key off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Having my fishing boat towed back to the dock 3 times, by a waverunner twice, is getting old.

      Is there anyway to test the one on there now or do you just have to try and replace it.

        Sure, run the motor at the dock or on a hose with the cover off. Heat the PP with a hair dryer or heat gun. If you use a heat gun, be very careful not to apply too much heat.

          Jim meant to add, "put a timing light on a spark plug wire, and when the motor dies, crank it and check for spark. If you have none, suspect to powerpack".

          Of course, an OEM manual will have more in depth tests for the PP, trigger, stator etc.

          Sorry to butt in Jim.

            Yeh, or just wait for it to stop ... either way, not long.
