  1. Loose wire on the timer base I believe is the problem (whenever it dies if I push that wire back up it'll start right back up). Going to test it out with a known good timer base and stator tomorrow to confirm. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Mine doesn't cut back it completely kills the motor unless that is what you mean? I'm going to tear into wires and take the flywheel off and look around under there. When I move around the little timing bracket that goes up under the flywheel is usually when I get spark back and that whole thing moves when throttling up so that may be a good place for you to look.

  3. Replaced lines before I ever ran it. I thought I added that I guess not Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. I tried everything for sunglasses before costas (Oakley, ray ban, smith, bollè) and all had different things I didn't like. Tried a pair of costas and I have 4 pairs now 3 plastic 1 glass. I have mirror blue, yellow, amber and mirrored amber. I really like the amber and mirrored amber for fishing all day. As Vince said the mirrored blue is also a really good option but mine in that color are a ray ban style not wrap arounds so they aren't ideal. The two I wear the most often are my Blackfins and Saltbreaks. Haven't got to wear my Blackfins fishing yet as I just got them but I think they're the most comfortable pair I have just from wearing them daily. Also if you live in the Utica area they have a good selection at gander mountain where you can try them on and they're 20 or 30% off with the store closing discounts.

  5. Confirmed spark issue thought I had it pegged took it out for a shakedown and it acted up again spread some wires apart and got it running for a while up on plane. Will have to tear into the wiring deeper tomorrow Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. Found a bad ground on the back of the shift linkage that would cut out once the linkage moved Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Timing should just go off the flywheel no? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Both and it cuts out quicker with carb linkage. Is there a nuetral safety on these like the I/Os? I messed with the linkage so thinking maybe that could be it but it was shifting fine Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. Hey thanks for the info I'm just talking jets in a way I'm used to like a snowmobile or dirt bike. I'll check on the choke thing later on toda Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. I'm putting carpet in my aluminum boat that I just had to refloor. There seems to be marine grade glue for it and online at least it says Home Depot has it Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. Hey guys I have a 70hp Evinrude VRO I got on a 90 Sea Nymph I bought for early and late season fishing. I got it running by cleaning the carbs and new plugs. Ran it up yesterday and it ran good but the impeller didn't have great flow so I changed that today. Got it all back together today and it doesn't seem to want to stay running under higher rpms sometimes it'll bog out and die when I hit the little throttle lever on the linkage and sometimes I'll put it in gear and let it run up with the butterfly's barely open and it'll go fine then just quit after about a minute. Not really sure what it could be guessing maybe a fuel issue or intermittent spark but I have nobody here to check spark while I turn it over. Any suggestions? I'm not too familiar with outboards and definitely not familiar with these kind of "jetless" carbs (only a pilot jet it seems. It idles fine once you can get it to start back up which could take 30 seconds to a few minutes. Thanks Paul! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Same here. Not impressed with the sales at all for a store that's closing. I did get a 4th pair of Costas 20% off lol Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. That's awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. How's everyone been staying busy this off season? I bought a 175 Sea Nymph a couple weeks ago after seeing people catching browns in December and February and decided I needed a small boat for that sort of thing. Guy had it for $500 needed a floor, checked spark, compression and the hull for popped rivets or gashes. Had none so I bought it. I have the floor pulled out ready for the new stuff to go back in and bought marine vinyl at Jo-Ann Fabric to redo the interior besides the seats. Found downrigger bases on here and a planer mast and new boards on CL. Should be ready to go after this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
