Motor dies when I put into gear


tjhunter

Question

I just bought a used 85 hp Suzuki and put it on my boat. It starts and idles fine, but when I put it into gear it dies. Any ideas on this?

I seem to recall someone I know had a similar problem with a Merc 70, I think he replaced the diaphram and it ran well after that.

Sounds line the carbs probably have some blockage. It is letting enough fuel through to run but when you give it the business it can't handle it not enough gas getting through. So I would guess that the previous owner didn't winterize it properly such as leaving gas in the system which gummed up the carbs. Start by cleaning your carbs and you might be set.

I had something like that happen to me last year. It would die unless you let it warm up and slowly increase power. I could not just open it up and take off. I'm not sure if that is your case, but I fixed mine by reseting my carbs idel adjustment. Slowly turning the set screw and putting it in gear until I was happy with it.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
