    Is the Force with anyone?

    Batteries are excellent, and compression is good on all 5 cylinders (don't know exact psi number, but a friend checked it with his gauge checked and said the compression was excellent. . I know the starter is failing due to me having it apart ....The brushes are shot and where brushes contact was "burnt looking". I cleaned the surface up and flipped brushes over. It was able to start motor, but the starter smoked a bunch.

    So we looked at all of your suggestions yesterday (thank you ) and also mickey moused, i mean rebuilt the starter and adjusted the floats on all three carbs. The bowls of the carbs were still filled with gas, is that normal after a week of sitting?? So on went the muffs and we turned the key........as usual. the motor fires right up on first crank in the driveway, go figure!! I will keep you posted once i put it back on the water and give it a "real" test. PS>>>>>does anybody have any suggestions on which starter to buy (brand??) there are dozens listed from $46-$200. All have eh reviews

    Try this. when you are running and it starts acting up have someone pump the primer bulb. If the boat runs fine or better while pumping then it is the fuel pump. If it isn't fuel pump it could be carbs need a rebuild. I will try this this weekend..Thanks

    A BIG NO on that . It actually acts as if the battery is dead. I did remove the plugs to see if it would crank and does so without the compression, but as soon as the plugs are reinstalled....hard to crank

    I am the friend. It's a 1990 Force 150. Cold, it idles great and even runs great half / 3/4 throttle. At full throttle, its starts to lose RPM'S and eventually dies and will not restart for days. Any Ideas???

    We have been out the last two weeks, with some success (3 fish all over 17") so I believe trophyseeker is correct with the assumption of the gobies being eaten. The big problem here is there are just no small fish. In most cases that would be great, but where are the younger generation to keep the population going? I hope it's just a simple case of not finding them.

    24-30 ft is where they were. Nothing but goby hits before 24ft!

    Update: We went to the bluffs again yesterday. We tried trolling, jigging, cranking., etc. Not much luck until we were just sitting there chewing the fat when out of nowhere..BAM!!! My buddy got our first "memorable" smallie of the year, tipping the scales at almost 5lbs. Believe it or not, it was the lack of presentation that worked. Just sitting a tube on the bottom with no action...He pulled in another the same way except it was a swimbait just laying on the bottom. Another weird thing that happened was we boated an almost 20 inch LMB that was quite anorexic. I dont think I've ever pulled a LMB that far out in the lake...weird.

    I've tried a couple of times since my original posting of this, all I can say is NOTHING!! Luckily Sodus Bay is a great confidence booster....When the smallies aint biting, go into the bay and I dare you not to catch some big a** LMB.
