Engine cuts off when I am coming in after being out for about 30 minutes. I can ride out to anywhere that gas and time will allow. I have gone as far as 12 miles out, I would cut the motor off, then fish for a while. Then when I am ready to return the motor seems to cut off after about a mile or two then I restart move again for a short period before it shut off again. I tried better GAS with a fuel cleaner additive and still no luck. It seem like the motor is not getting enough gas or this is what I think. I check and re prime the motor but the same thing happens again. It runs well when running. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

It’s seem to run good now that I have made a few changes but if it does it again. I will put in the shop right away.... Thanks, I agree with you saving money because i may have to wait so time before I can get it fixed.
I can't wait to test the motor again. I will stay close to the dock and plus I will give it a shot on the river. I can always anchor up and wait for a passing boat or make a radio/cell phone call for one. Plus as a bonus I don't have to deal with a tide, strong, currents or windy conditions. Hey good luck on the motor and please let me know how you do make out...
My motor will not start. It ran fine that last time I had it out about 4 weeks ago but now nothing. I have good spark and gas. I am not sure what could have happen but I am not playing with it. I now know that I mixed to much oil in the gas so maybe this is causing so issues. I now have new gas, new sparks, the right mix and still nothing... I the cost doesn't kill me...
On Friday I bought a new fuel pump for $48.50 and it was well worth it. I had also rapped my wires with electrical tape and then placed them in electrical tubing. I was having some arching issue when I have check for spark with one of the spark plugs. So I installed just about all of my wiring that I could reach to make sure all would work well. My motor is so old and I wanted to give it all the love it needs. Anyway now it starts like a new motor and I can't wait to give it a test run. I hope to make it out to the river some time this week. I will post an update soon. Thanks!
