    4.3 mercruiser issues

    Hi, I had this type of problem once on the 4.3 of my Princecraft Corsica. I just bought the boat and took it to a marine dealer for a full check up and tune up. I took the boat to the lake for my first run... It ran fine on idle but when i gave it some throtle it wouldn't take the gas. I tried different things with no success. I finally got back slowly to the marina launch and told the marina owner my problem and i decided to leave it for their mechanics to look at it. They called me back a few days after and told me that one of the ignition wires was on the wrong cylinder so they reviewed the correct sequences and timing. After that it ran great. I hope this can help. Robert

    Issue with Kicker Motor - Fuel Starving/Stalling

    Hi, I had a similar problem with mine (9.9 Yamaha). I had the motor for a couple of years when this started and i found that the problem was the fuel connector (the one that you pinch the lever to hook up to the engine). After a few years of turning right and left (mine was attached to the outdrive of my I/O) the tube that goes in the fuel line (attached with a collar) was starting to weaken and was cracked just enough to suck up some air. I replaced the fitting and problem solved. Hope this helps. Robert

    Please help with troubleshooting my kicker!

    Hi ! I had a similar problem with my kicker last month and by chance i found the problem quickly. It was my fuel connector (the part that clips on to the engine with 2 prongs). The stem that the fuel line is attached to started to kink when i turned the motor and it stopped the gas from going thru. I replaced it and gave it a bit longer fuel line and it's been running great since. Good luck, hope you find the problem. Robert
  6. Hi, Sorry for not giving a price on the post. I don't want to start going back and forth with prices. Don't get me wrong i understand it's ok for people to ask but i would rather deal with a PM for those interested. This way we could even get on the phone and talk about the boat and the equipment and i am sure we can come up with a price that is satisfactory for both of us. Like i said, i would rather keep it but i made a choice and i want to sell it so i am not looking to make money just want a fair price.
  7. Still for sale...new price $17,000 This boat has to be seen, in great shape, like new. Hi ! I have my 1992 Penn Yan 245 Contender for sale. I have been fishing for many years and the lady and i have decided that the time has come to doing something else. This boat is in great shape and got alot of TLC. I am selling it fully loaded from the trailer to the cooler. It has always been maintained by a professional and stored in a heated warehouse in winter. It has over $10,000 in equipment alone (too long to write down). Asking price is very resonable. I would like serious people interested and i am willing to negociate. I know this boat will make someone very happy. Hate to see it go like i said i put alot of TLC in it. If someone is interested, send me PM and i will be happy to answer any questions. Boat is currently docked in Port D'Arlington. Thank you for looking. Robert

    Best Fillet Knife

    I saw the Bubba blade on TV and decided to try one. Great knife, works like a charm on those big Chinooks, goes thru the bones and skin like butter. Easy to sharpen, a few strolls on the steel sharpener and keep on going. I don't regret getting it. Miko
