  • Carb and timing tutorial.

    I just downloaded a video to you tube titled carb and timing tutorial showing how to synchronize timing and carbs. I'll be damned if I can access it myself but perhaps you fellows can.

        Got your link address wrong Frank.

        You need a 't' before the D (after the youtu.be/), and the 1 at the end should be a lower case L.

        Copy and paste is your friend for this stuff.

        It should be: http://youtu.be/tDoR64jP5l8

            Thanks Frank! Very Helpful! If you could make a video for the impeller change that would be much appreciated!

              Hi all, I made a video to add some detail to timing on a force 120 from 1992 (although the process is the same for dynamically setting the timing advance on many motors). I need to do some light editing (kept calling the starter the throttle, etc.) but none the less it shows clearly how to ground your spark plug wires and how to jump the safety switch. When I was researching how to do this, that specific info was sort of hard to find, and being new to boat motors I didn't want to screw anything up.

              How to set timing on outboard motor - YouTube

              Hopefully this is a good supplement to franks video!

                Great videos thanks for posting them. I have a follow up question though, when setting the throttle link initially at what position should the eccentric on the carb link be? fully out or in? I'm not really sure of the purpose of this eccentric is either!!.....Thanks..Paul
                I'm a dummy just watched it again and figured it out!! sorry.................
