Motor issue withh 1999 Yamaha F100

3 posts in this topic

Last weekend when I went fishing the motor would bog between 2000-3200 rpm. It starts fine, idles fine, and runs fine up to 2000 rpm and then from 3200 rpm to WOT at 6000 rpm. It also does it when coming back down through that rpm range. I changed spark plugs and gas filter this week but it did the same thing this morning. Any ideas?

I'd try cleanig and synchronizing your carbs. Sounds like one or 2 low speed jets may be plugged and not letting it transition into high rpm's smoothly.

It could be one of a lot of things.

The greatest load put on the outboard is just after you punch it. A bad plug, wire or weak coil will show up at that time. First thing I'd do is replace the plugs.

Next it sounds like its happening when the bow is up, once on plain she runs fine. The fuel level in the carbs aren't optimal when the outboard is tilted. Normally the outboard shouldn't flood or run lean for that small amount of time. Its an indication that the fuel system needs attention. If thats the case then most likely the fuel level in a carb.

Next time out and she acts up and thats after you replaced the plugs, put it on plain at a slower rate and see what happens.

Also just for the nuts of it have a compression test done.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
