What do you mean by gas?

Johnson Boating | 21 views | 0 helpful votes

Check the ignition system, check for spark at the plug, if it has no spark check your points, ignition coil, etc. If it has spark you need to check the fuel system so that's gonna boil down to an obstructed fuel line, a clogged fuel filler, or something in the carburetor(s). That should lead you to figuring it out my friend, best of luck. It's always either air, fuel, or spark! If one or more of the 3 are missing it'll never run(not right if it does), those basics always apply to an internal combustion engine of any age or size, whether carbureted or fuel injected. Thanks and Best of Luck

I feel your carburettor has a faulty float. It allows the gas to keep flowing till the engine is full or flooded. The float is made to cut the flow of gas off when the engine shuts down.

A little hard to say.. Should clear on its own. Try disconnecting the batteries for an hour ... if I remember correctly there are different types of bedpan for each malfunction.... Long and on to short beeps in different sequences. One thing that makes a boat act like it has a gremlin is a failing thermostats... Chevy Serra does the same backwards flips. So if the batteries load test good and the connections are solid then I'd be checking for a partially plugged thermostat or restricted cooling line or failing water pump. ( change at least every three years , ) costs a few hundred dollars to service an engine , takes a lifetime to row back in.
