  • 1999 15 hp yamaha fuel problem

    I just put a new diaphram in the carb. The engine idles great, but will not take the gas fast but will take it if you turn throttle slowly. If running about 1500 rpms for about 30 seconds engine will cut off like it is out of gas, but will start right back up. Could it be a clogged carb or fuel pump? any advice
    would be greatly appreciated.

    The diaphragm you replaced was it the only part you replaced? There are more than one in that fuel pump.
    Sounds like the pump is not getting enough the fuel into carb or you have plugging in the carb. Pull the carb and clean out all passages

      The only diaphram I replaced was the one in the carburetor. The motor was running great until the diaphram started leaking at the bottom of the carb. I also forgot to mention that the motor is a 4 stroke.

        These carbs can be very fussy! The passages and jets are very small and the only way to get them right is a complete rebuild,disassemble and soak all metal parts in carb cleaner for a day and blow ALL passages out with compressed air. This is not the time to take shortcuts!!! Installing a water seperating filter between the engine and primer bulb would be a good idea.

          I disassembled the carb to clean it and it looked ok inside. I went ahead and checked all holes and cleaned it. Put it back together and it still would not take the gas and would cut off. So I decided to reajust the air mixture screw. It was backed out 3 turns so I backed it out 1/2 turn at a time to 4 1/2 turns, it takes the gas now and does not cut off. I haven't tried it in the lake yet, but I think I will probably have do a little fine tuning. Is it normal to have the air adjustment backed out to 4 1/2 turns?

            Four stroke carbs run lean from the start.(You can thank the EPA) I really can't tell you the exact number of turns on the mixture screw,there all different.Just make sure you have CLEAN fuel,put the boat in the water and run and adjust the carb.
