Motor question?

8 posts in this topic

I have a 90 hp 1986 Evinrude on my Lund Renegade boat....I know it's time for a new boat. My question pertains to my motor (which I had to change to a gas/oil mixture due to problems with VRO a few years ago) and its inability to accelerate quickly. When starting to drive my boat, it seems to take quite a bit of time to get up to speed which it does eventually do. I wonder if anyone has had similar challenges and possibly has a remedy.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Have you tuned it up, checked compression? Is prop slipping?

Nice Jkrash. I was a bit miffed until I saw the author of the comment. Coming up Thursday, how are they (walleyes) hitting?

Still the same pitch prop ? Maybe drop a couple inches in pitch and that should give you a better hole shot , and also check the fuel filter .

He could also drain the water out of his boat grin.gif

Eyes are still hitting good, the hard part is finding the 15-16s for the pan.

If you wound up changing to premix cuz you were having problems with the VRO you may still need to change the VRO/fuel pump. You may just not be getting enough gas to the carbs..

I would run some sea foam through the thing too.

Thanks to all for your comments.........with the exception of the witty JKrash...Seriously, it turned out (and I am no expert, thus I may foul this up) that one of my spark plug cables was worn and my motor wasn't hitting on all cylinders. Again, I may not have explained that correctly but that was the problem. Will at Timbukto did a nice job at fixing.

Thanks for all of your insight.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
