Motor HelP

7 posts in this topic

My motherinlaw has a 80hp Envirude, it starts hard, but it starts, it idles great and would do so all day if you let it. The problem is when you put a load on the engine it dies. Everytime you put it in gear, the motor dies.

Any Input? confused.gif

Standard reply for this is to test compression and spark first. My guess is that it is fuel related. Probably a ruptured diaphragm in the fuel pump or the carb is dirty and needs rebuild. The reason for the compression and spark test is if one or both of these fail the motor could be trashed and spending money on carb and fuel pump kits will be a waste of money.

Hard starting and won't run with a load. I think your not getting enough fuel or it could be compression.

Do you have manual of electric choke? Is it working?

Check these, compression, gas lines and connections for air leaks, & fuel filter. Fuel line bulb, when you squeeze it does it stay hard and full when idling? If all those check out then I'd turn to the fuel pump and a carb cleaning.

I just had that happen on my motorcycle. The issue was gas in the fuel. May want to look for that as well. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Knowing Jimbo somewhat...he may have been doing some testing of his own and injecting some other type of "gas" into his fuel!

Careful Jimbo...results may vary! confused.gif

If you haven't tried a new set of plugs, start there.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
