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.

    Re: suzuki df6 4 stroke

    Your carburetor is gummed up, flychucker.

    Anyone who tries to work on an outboard without a manual has a fool for a mechanic. Steelspike.

    We are proud to be able to supplement a Manual, but we cannot replace it. Moderators and helpers here do not work for iboats or any Manual printer. We work for you, and without compensation.

        I have probably been messing with outboards a lot longer than you have been breathing, Flychucker. The other helpers here have probably been messing with outboards for several thousand years. Steelspike's statement is abundantly true.

        A carb is not a carb. They differ in hundreds of ways, but when the jets or orifices are gummed up they all act the same. That is far as I can go on a DF6.

        If you come here and ask for advice you would do very well to pay attention, rather than bitching that you didn't hear what you wanted to hear.

        I agree that not everyone who posts on here is an idiot. In fact very, very few are idiots. Once in a while we get one. . .like um. . .nevermind.

          I suport the previous reply.
          Please calm youself and take note of what you are told. Did you use a fuel preservative such as Stabil in your fuel? If you did not then you most definately have a blocked carb problem, The spraying of carb cleaner will only damage any plastic or rubber parts in the carb. Therefore carb cleaner is a no no. To clean the carb it must be removed and taken apart and soaked according t instructions in a carb cleaner solvent. This is available from Adv ance auto or others.
          Hope this is of some help.
