    Default 1975 70hp evinrude wont fire after carb rebuild

    I have been playing around with this engine for a while now
    when i first got it i tried to start it well the floats where messed up so i decided to rebuild the carbs

    1.it did run for a few seconds before the rebuild it back fired out the exhaust
    then flooded
    2.I then checked for spark good on all cylinders
    3. checked compression good and even on all cylinders about 125psi
    4. rebuilt carbs
    5.replaced fuel pump just in case
    6.tried to start
    7.seems like no gas is getting to plugs they are bone dry
    8.now gas is starting to spit out the front of the carbs

    all most like the is no crankcase vacum

    any help with this would be great

    thanks Bob

    you could have a intake leak and check the timing is their fuel coming from the carb jets?


    what type of carb? make and modal

    1975 Evinrude what? Gas flooding out the front of your carbs sounds like floats hung open.Are you sure theyre opening and closing/seating properly?Did you do link and sync after the rebuild?

    DONT FORGET TO PUT THE PLUG IN!!HAPPY MOTORING

    i checked the float level 3 times and made sure they where not binding before putting it back together

    all linkage hooked up exactly how it came apart

    will have to check to see if the jets are sqruiting

    Bob,
    I have this engine as well. Carefully check routing of the fuel line from pump to middle carb. It can get pinched between silencer and the engine if not careful. When you look you'll see an opening in the silencer for the hose. I made my fuel line a little extra long so it's not kinked at the carb and allows enough length to route through the opening in the silencer body. This is an awesome engine when running correctly, Good Luck...

    After putting the bowls back on the carbs,did you blow into the fuel intake with the carb right side up[and you could blow through it]and then turn the carb upside down and blow into it[you shouldnt be able to blow through it as the float/ needle valve should be closed],,,, if you can blow through it while upside down,your float is catching on something,gasket,inside of bowl,pivot pin might have a catch on it,,or the needle valve has trash in it,or needle valve could be mis aligning with the seat.,,,,so there are quite a few things that can cause float problems,,,,also one overlooked simple thing,,,make sure the spring that holds your needle valve to your float is holding the needle valve snuggly to the bottom of the float to insure it is moving right and tight with it.

    update

    well she does run now but cant keep her running
    it seems like it breaks up when you rev it

    the spark seems alittle weak

    think i may try a power pack next

    sound like a good idea


    thanks Bob
