  • Mercury 40hp OC233028 issue

    The engine runs great for 15 minutes out on the water, they power output drops to about 50%, a few mechanics have not been able to figure out why.
    Anyone have any ideas, fuel pump just rebuild, engine dynoed, carbs cleaned.

    How well vented is your fuel tank?

      I was wandering the same thing, this is on my old boat and I have not experienced it myself.
      Thanks for your input I will definitely ask him about that.

        Run the motor off a new/different/portable gas tank and see what happens.
