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.

    50:1Red line around 5000-5500 (semi educated guess) and decals probably available through most dealers. Perhaps located at http://www.brownspoint.com/index.htm

      John,I have an 83 DT50. I run 50:1 on the mix it works fine. Here are a couple of things I learned with mine. It doesn't like to start if the timing is set after top dead center. I set it at top dead center at idle. The idle timing set is independant of other throttle positions. obviously if yours starts fine don't change it. The safety switch on the control set, the one you hook to your body in case you fall out it shuts the motor off. I think they call it the lanyard. The rubber cap that plugs onto that switch to keep it activated is kind of funnel shaped and after a number of years it has lost its shape allowing the swich to open even when the cap was plugged on. It took a long time to find the problem because it was so intermittant. some days it would work fine. Sometimes it would die on the lake. Sometime it wouldn't start. sometimes it cut in and out while running.
