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.

  • Yamaha 25 HP 4 cycle Carb Problems ??

    Hi, This subject was posted by "tjtraver" on 2002-07-03. I was wondering Todd, if you had any successful outcomes, because my motor is doing the exactly the same thing! I have pulled the carby apart and everything looks 'in order', also all the fuel lines are clear. After about 20 minutes flat stick, she dies. Any help would be much appreciated, as before this problem the motor has never let me down. "I have a 4 or 5 year old yahama 25 hp 4 cycle engine that starts and runs fine for about 30 minutes ... then the engine quits running and has fuel running out the overflow from the top of the carb... Anyone have ideas what's going on here ? Is it somehow fuel presure related ? Any insights into this problem appreciated ... Thanks, Todd Traver"

    hello most likly trash in the fuel lines or a bad needle/seat or a faulty float. time to test not a hard job but sometimes must be done.
    no tech questions by PM, they wont get answered.
    you have to be trusted by the people that you lie to .

      Had the same thing.Turned out to be a float needle valve problem.Disasemble the carbs carefully and check and clean all the float parts in each of the carbs. I had 4 carbs on my 50 4 stroke Yammy. These guys have a habit of gumming up for no apparent reason.

          I ended up changing gas tanks and it is not a problem now. I had several mechanics fix the motor, but it turned out to be a tank issue. Hope this helps.

            Walmart carries a fuel/water separater/filter for $27, easy 2 screw installation on transom, can save you a lot of grief with water, debris,ethanol,old, contaminated fuel problems. A good investment!
