Ok cut the chase....what preventative gunking measures do you guys do to your o/b's if you are not using them?
Yesterday went to inspect a mooring
, dragging along a foggy head
full of flu,
and thought I would take the 15hp as it was some distance. This motor
would have done all of 5hrs & looks brand new; bought new in 2001 but just not used.
Started second pull, warmed, proceeded thru a fleet of returning gbe's & class boats to die right in the middle of them!
Would idle, but under load, would just give up. I have had o/b's all my life and never had to clean out jets from gunking up.
Is it the current fuel
or modern motors? I should have taken the 80's Yammy 4hp that never gets any attention at all but wont get the rib
This is the first mercury
I have owned. All omc
& Yamaha previously.
