Knoxville area.

I have a V4 130HP 2-stroke, that needs some fine tuning before the fall redfish/trout season. Got anybody you would suggest? Thanks

I never did either until I got water in my gas from a station in SC on i-95. It screwed up my truck and my boat. Right now it starts but takes a long time to start. It's acting as if it's not getting gas on initial start up. Once started it cracks great but if it sits it's a mother to start.

Dump your fuel, put a fuel/water separator in line with your fuel line. Never let your gas sit for very long, the ethanol in gas somehow makes water. Thank your ignorant, greed stricken, self serving, government for putting corn in our gas and keeping our planet green. With the price of oil at historic highs the best thing they can come up with it to use our most valuable food source as gas. What a bunch of forward thinkers we have in office these days.

Did all the above as soon as I got back. It's like (no mechanic here but worked on some carbs back in the 70's) the bowl is not filling up when I squeeze the bulb. It gets tight and then it almost immediately loosens up. Once it starts, no problem on restart right away. if you wait 30min to an hour, then back to the same problem.

I appreciate all the help and names. I will let you know how it goes.

Thanks Mike,

Thanks for all the replies. I hope somebody else can use all the suggestions.

I picked up my boat yesterday with the report card....good compression, good spark, and both carbs clean. He said the plugs were pulled when he tried to start it and they were wet. He stuck a lighter up to the plugs and they didn't ignite (pretty good trick I thought). the fuel/water separator was removed and no water.

Mr. Laws thought I still had rements of the additives I put in the tank from the time I emptied it after I got the bad gas. I had put in SeaFoam, and Valvaline water remover, and Techron. I may have overdone it on the additives trying to get all that water out, and it in itself settled out causing the initial start up problems.

It starts now faster, and continues to start after it's been running without problems. I am going to try and run all the gas out of it in the next few days and start with totally new.

Thanks for all the help.

PS. Mr. Laws was great to work with, cheaper than going mechanic rate in Knoxville, and was available anytime I called. I will give you his phone number if you PM me.
