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.

  • 1976a Eska fuel mix ratio & parts source

    I was recently given an Eska 7.5 HP Model 1976-a Serial # 57. There was no manual or instructions with it and I am not sure of the fuel mix ratio. There was a small amount of fuel in the integrated tank and the motor would'nt start right away. I,m unsure of the best way to set the rich/lean mix knob. There was also fuel leaking from the remote tank inlet and I assume I can block the fuel line with a tee to stop it. (or try to find a compatible tank)

    I could also use some help to find a Canadian or US supplier for parts if I need them.

    Fuel mix is 32:1, use TCW3 rated oil.Certified parts corp or check the net for Eska.There may be a shut off for the remote connector.A single line tank will work, you could adapt almost any connector.If it has sat around a lot you will have to go through the fuel system from tank to carb.
    These are marginal performers and usually finicky to operate.They are a low cost entrance to boating if you can get it to operate without too much cost.
    If it was mine I would get it to opertate as good as possible and sell it and apply the money toward the E/J 5,5.5,6,7.5 or 8 hp.All will out perform the Eska.

      Thanks for the info on the mix. I've been doing some other digging on the website and have found out a few other things like it being produced under quite a few other brand names and that it is air cooled. Now that I have the fuel mixture I'm going to try to get it going this weekend. I'll let you know how it turns out. Have a great weekend.
