40hp Evinrude

Question

opsirc

I have a 1984 40hp evinrude, when to start this year after it has been sitting for 5yrs. It was drawing so much juice that it melted one one the terminals off. The only thing different is I disconnected the oil injection system because it was in constant alarm. Did this after talking to the service dept at a outboard motor dealership. Everything else is the same, when i parked it would turn over with no problem, now hard turning. Anyone have idea i am out of them.

 

Thanks

when was the most recent time it started normally?   You did start mixing oil in gas when you disconnected the injection system, right?

This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      I do security at Vikings museum n store. If you haven’t been there, you should.  It has a lot of Viking history starting before the Vikings with Ernie’s Eskimos to the current day.  Who knows it just might run in to one of the former Vikings . Randall McDaniel and even Bud Grant  stop in occasionally.  We have had visitors from England Australia Tasmania Ireland and yes even Wisconsin .  The hours are Monday through Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday noon to five.  And they’ve also lowered their price .  So if the fish aren’t biting come check out some Viking history .

      The regulation I was referring to is the going from 8 to 6 fish limit with not more than 4 walleye. Does this mean you can have 6 sauger and no walleye?

      Can you point out the new regs? I have been out spearing and fishing but it's so hard getting around I think it is preventing a lot of people going out.

      Maybe you should change it to a bowling get together 😉

      I've been having health problems lately so can't comment on the fishing but I agree completely with the change of regs.

      It's awful quiet on this site, fishing can't be that bad or is it? Also how does everybody feel about the March 1st regulation change?

      Bert, go look at information online about Dane County wisconsin.   They did nothing and now have infection rates rapidly approaching 50% of the deer in some areas.      And yes, deer/elk farms have been known vectors of CWD for decades. See Elk Run near Pine Isand as an example, or the importing of breeding stock by lease hunting operations in Dane County.    But some folks were making money and they captured the regulators in the Ag department of the state. so the natural resource folks couldn't do much, apparently.       Funny you  guys should mention AIS. since it was known for a long time that the ships from Europe pumping their bilge and ballast in the great lakes was a problem, but the coast guard didn't make them flush tanks at sea for several decades, because the ship operators kept whining it would increase cost.    So now we have gobies and zeebs and quagas and spiny water fleas and other bad stuff.   Likewise with green wood pallets that brought us dutch elm disease, and emerald ash borers.   There could have been a reg that all wood pallets coming into the country needed to be heat treated.   But that would have cost someone money, so now no ash or elm trees around.      If caught quick enough in an area CWD can be eradicated (see pine island ) and the elimination of deer farms will greatly slow the spread.      Where are the QDM and Deer Hunter association folks?  Why aren't they demonstrating and lobbying and all that for the state to do something more aggressive?
