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.

  • OX66 Fuel Pressure reading HIGH

    Hello All -

    This all started since I am having surging problems at higher RPMs. There is also no "hole shot" anymore. If I try and pound the throttle she wont get up without sounding like she is starving for fuel. I can slowly climb the boat up on plane but once I try and open up to WOT the motor starts surging and RPMS start dropping.

    Sounded like fuel starvation issue to me. To verify that I took out the pressure gauge and got 60PSI?? I thought the manual calls for 35-36PSI?
    It was 60 PSI as soon as I turned the key, at idle, and bounced around between 60 - 70 PSI during a bay test. Even when the motor starts surging it is never below 60PSI.

    So my question question is 1) What would cause this high fuel pressure? and 2) How is it related to my surging problem! The motor is a 2001 OX66 250HP.

    if rail pressure is out of spec(high or low) the injectors will not be putting the proper amount of fuel into the cylinders.
    there should be a pressure regulator that releases excess pressure

      The pressure regulator returns excess gasoline back to the VST as part of its job in controlling fuel pressure. There is a strainer/filter in the return. If said strainer/filter is clogged then excessive fuel pressure can result.

      Too much fuel and the motor won't run just like it won't run if too little fuel.

        Thank you Boscoe! So my first step would be cleaning out/replacing that filter? If that doesnt work I assume I would have to replace the entire regulator?
