90hp yamaha fizzling out

3 posts in this topic

I have a 90 4-stroke Yamaha (03) which up until this Spring has ran like a champ. This year when I put her in neutral and idle, it eventually kills. If I keep the tachometer over 10 she stays alive. When I put the throttle down it runs fine. I have it winterized every year, oil changed, stabilize the gas, etc. One of my theories was bad/old gas. I have gone through about 2 new tanks this year so far. I did put in some SeaFoam. It might be a little better- not much. A buddy said change the plugs, and if it's not better you may need some carb work. Any thoughts would help. Thanks

I believe that motor is fuel injected. You may need to have the injectors cleaned. You can run some injector cleaner through, but still may have to take it in to have them checked.

That year has the carbs, either carbs are dirty or you have a vapor leak in your supply hose (Gas), check your supply hose first.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous.
