  1. Thanks to all that replied. Your advice is very appreciated. I attached a vid of it running. It's a bit Smokey but I'm assuming that's the fogging oil. It hesitates for a second at the end but that's the bare wires of the kill touching. Thank you again! 20200514_184559.mp4
  2. Oldman. I owe you. I guess the idle screw was turned all up. Tried it quick without water and it sounded great. Tomorrow I'll put it to the test in water. Thank you!!
  3. Thank you gents. I'll give the carb screws a try.
  4. Hey guys. I picked up a used outboard and everything seemed ok on it. Started up looks clean. Tested it at home and it runs fine but then after about 20 seconds it revs up super high in idle. Almost like the throttle is opened up fully. If I turn the throttle it will rev up a bit more. Any thoughts on what it could be? It's a 2000 8hp johnson
  5. Duped the topic by mistake
  6. Thanks OF. I'll take a look at the link. Watch a lot of danger marine vids too.
  7. Hey BC. That's great. How can I get a hold of your son?
  8. So with all this spare time at home, figured I'd do something useful and change up the prop seals. Gonna take a stab it at myself. Any good online sites that would sell these and the O rings? Thanks.
  9. If you use a solar panel do you need a charge controller?
  10. Any of you guys leave your boat in the water over the summer? what do you do from preventing it from sinking from rain water? my brother in law tried that for one weekend and found the boat just inches from sinking. Looking for some possible solutions because I hate trailering the boat back and back to the launch. i know bilge is an option, but worried about it failing or the battery dying. Thanks.
  11. what size rivets are used for aluminum boats?
  12. I'll be replacing the lines as well now that I know what it was. So what makes a good quality line?
  13. Issue resolved. I tried moving the gas tank up to about half the height of the motor and it was spilling gas out the fuel pump. Let it running for about 30 seconds and it continued. Hooked everything back up and it was running for a good 5 mins without issues. Thanks for the help guys.
  14. i use K100. i put some old gas in a glass jar that clearly had water in it. this stuff burned it all away.
