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.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
