Do not use the tiny files. They will change the jet size. Get some injector cleaner or go to your local Evinrude store and get what they call Engine Tuner, soak the REMOVED jets and other parts over night. Blow with compressed air. More better.

By the fact that you put a 5 horse on your rib, I'm guessing that "go fast" never has been a priority. If that is the case, then I think you would have been happier all along with a dink that rows easily.

Possibly? The RIB and the 5 stroke just came with the mothership when I bought her.

5 stroke. just when I began to understand the difference between the 2 stroke and 4 stroke you come out with a 5 stroke. I will never dance or swim with you.

The 5th stroke you get from a finnicky 4-stroke as you try to pull start it in 95 Degree weather...

That's right! I'm talking about golf. I'm in Sandy Hook, driving onto the beach from the foredeck.
