Hi all, I have just recently bought a bout which for the first few months taking it out went fine, The other night how ever i ran into a different problem at every corner in the end resulting drifting with the tides back to the closest boat ramp (5 hours)
1 = Motor has a miss in it i have replaced the coils, power pack and cleaned the caby. What else can it be can do it when idling or when full throttle it cuts power for second causing the boat to surge back and forth.
2 = After fishing all night went to come home and hit a sand bar ( not hard) but with the motor running like it was it stalled anyway. When i started it back up and placed it in gear it wouldnt go anywhere? i turned it off and played with gearbox lever and i could put it in forward or reverse and could turn the motor with it? Any ideas what i have broken?
Just to put an update on how things are going. I have pulled lower housing out to find a very clean snap at the top of the drive shaft problem is that its stuck in side of it. right at the base of the spline. Not sure how i am going to get this out yet. Problem with the miss i was recieveing is the hood lining was piece by piece coming off and going through the carb at a guess.
