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.

  • 1986 Yamaha 130 want to remove oil injection ???

    I have a 1986 Yamaha 130 and would rather mix my oil with the gas than trust this oil injection system. How do I disconnect the injection system? After that do I just run 50:1 oil to gas mixture like the old days? Am I crazy to want to do this?

    I never heard of any problems with Yamaha's injection system. There was an inline checkvalve update once upon a time, but I think that was about the only thing. And that was just an upgrade, nothing serious. The problems I hear most about involve early Johnnyrude VROs and Merc's pump drive gear failures. That was back around 1986. The American companies were playing catch-up. Japaneese outboards had them first (not including those funky Accumix and Autoblend gadgets).
    Hey, Have you seen? They make Really Cool life preservers nowadays.
    So "Looking Dorky" is no longer an excuse for not wearing one.

        The earliest models imported were 1984's. There were some oil injection gear problems with Yamaha through the 1986 models before changing the drive gear. Removing the oil injection from that model involved removing the parts including the oil pump and drive shaft for the pump and blocking the hoses to the intake. A plate is available for the oil pump hole off the consumer V-4 or V-6 models or a nickel and some DEvcon or JB weld can be used to block the hole.

            The 1988 model is almost identical. Same procedure as the earlier model.
