      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Have a older 4 stroke yamaha starts fine warms up then when i go to put it in forward it chokes and dies..and even if i squeeze the bulb thinking its not getting enough gas..but its getting enough gas and the carb is clean and injectors are clean..Had it in to a older marine mechanic who doesnt work on 4 strokes but it has him miffed as to the problem as he says its getting enough gas but something is stopping it from gas when you put it in forward position..Hope this might be enough information for you and you might have an idea...He says the next thing to try is a carb kit for it..

Stalls out under load...

What year does "older" indicate?

What happens if you advance the throttle slightly before going into gear? Does it still stall?

I'm actually wondering about your lower unit...Resistance?

Sounds like a dead cylinder. Pull the plugs and spark test each. Also check the tips of each plug. A clean tip could mean a blown head gasket or a plug that is not firing.

I do think it is possible fuel pump (lack their of) and I do agree to pull plugs and check. If possible do fuel pressure test. Also replace plugs if you already have not done so. This is what I would do if it was a two stroke.

Have you tried idling it up via the neutral throttle control (either via pushing the button in on the middle of the control lever (if flush mount) or via the lever along side the main control box lever)? If so, does it cut out then?

I'd also check for spark and the spark plugs.

Start there.. and let me know what you find.

spark plugs are new and its getting spark..also pressure check and cylinders are all 100%..idles fine and let it warm up and still when it is put in forward position it sputters and stalls..the carb was cleaned and injectors are working and fuel bowl has gas in it..the guy that is working on it is very exp. in 2 strokes and is miffed as to why it doesnt get any gas when you advance it to forward.squeezes the bulb to try to give it gas to keep it running but still bogs and stalls...he was checking into a carb kit for it to see how much it could run for this model..as year not sure what year it is but i figure it is one of the first model possibly yamaha made its white..i would say 1999 model possibly...thanks for help hope this info might help me help him where to check next..

I don't know if this will help but have you checked the air intake? My 25 hp Johnson would idle fine but when I gave it some throttle would bog, cough and sputter. There was a hunk of foam from the inside of the cover that had gotten into the air intake. Something else to check.

yes the idling doesnt help once you put it in gear she sputters and bogs once it wants to go..like it is starving for gas..but it is getting gas..could it be fuel pump..or do you think looking into a carb kit is the way to go..

How do you know it is getting gas?

I had a Yamaha 40 that acted like that and it was a choke diaphragm issue.

If compression and spark is good and fuel is being delivered then I would take the lower unit off remove the water pump and hand turn in forward gear. From the description of what you mechanic has done the lower unit could be trashed and locked up.

lower unit is fine as that has been done..its having a lean miss fire..he has taken the screw off and can see that it is getting gas..he describes it as a lean miss backfire..air intake is not plugged as he can see through it.does not have a choke diaphram on it..So keep the ideas coming if anybody has any other ideas...

I do not know all the in and outs, but it sounds like manual fuel pressue test of fuel pump to see if with specs. You should be able to do an in line test while running with rabbit ears on and see if it drops out of spec.. this would at least rule out pump if it is not it. Possibley elec. (possibley a micro switch if they have one) they cut spark at this time. Possibley bring in for second opion.

Is it possible to have both injectors and a carb? Is this engine carburated or fuel injected?

I'm sorry, but I still don't understand what you're saying here. If it's in neutral and you use the high speed idle feature (revving up the engine in neutral) does it exhibit the same symptoms?

I'm pretty sure if this is a 1999 model it's got carburetors.

Is this a tiller or console mode??? Northlander is having a similar problem but it stalls when going into neutral ,,,could it be a neutral switch adjustment/malfunction???

yes it stalls and sputters when you use the fast idle..it is carb no injectors...the guy looking at it says its a lean miss fire.. you can idle it just fine and high idle it but the minute you put it in forward it sputters and stalls..he is checking with some other mechanices and see if it might need a carb kit..will let you guys know what happens..

A lean miss fire should not cut out eng., or maybe computer see this and shuts down. I do not know, I have not had a lean or miss fire issue before, that stalls. Possible fuel pump still or leaking intake gasket or carp gasket to intake gasket. It cuts out, how many variables could their be? If you shift it back in Neu. does it stay running?

Thank you for answering my question.

Based on your information now I'd say it's a carb or fuel pump problem. You either have some junk in the carbs, or, your carbs might not be in synch any more, especially if you or the mechanic adjusted one and not the rest, etc.

In regard to the fuel pump - you should be able to verify if the pressure is in spec or not.

Presuming you haven't put a carb kit in it lately it might not be a bad idea, but when it's done you must pay attention to how many turns the jets are in when you remove them to clean them and install them the same number of turns.

If you're still exhibiting the same symptoms it's probably time for a trip to the dealer. Synching 2 carbs by ear isn't too hard, but 4 is another story.

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
