motor help

Ran my 9.9 evinrude on monday for the first time...ran like a charm. Last nite went to start it and it fired right up, ran for 20 seconds then stopped. Went to restart, pulled, and the rope would not catch and now it just hangs out. Anyone have an idea as to why this happened? Thanks fellas...

Re: motor help

What to check? If it has fuel and spark it should run.

Broken fuel line
Fuel line became disconnected
Check for spark at spark plugs
Tank may have a fuel filter in the tank could be dirty
Should be a fuel filter somewhere check for dirty filter
loose broken or corroded wiring somewhere.

Probably lots of other stuff I missed,but this is a place to start.

Re: motor help

Most likely similar to lawnmower cord. The spring can break or strip from plastic. It takes a shop 20-30 minutes to replace. Doing yourself can be an adventure. Especially if spring uncoils

Re: motor help

It's not that hard to replace. 2 or 3 bolts bolts and replace spring. If it happens again while out on the water carry a peice of rope about 3 foot long. There is a spot on top of the fly wheel where you can wrap the rope around and pull it to get it started. Just tie a large knot in the rope on one end first than slide it in the groove and tug. MAke sure no one is right b ehind you or they will get smacked when the rope comes off the fly wheel.

Re: motor help

The rope would start it. I had a 175 hp evenrude and they gave you a pull rope in a little plastic pouch on the inside engine cover. I always figured it was to hang yourself with or take your mind off the fact you were going to die of thirst while you waited for someone to find you.

Re: motor help

Sounds like 2 problems. First, a bad spring in the recoil starter. Second, probably a clogged carburetor jet (but could be a lot of other things). If you ran it with old fuel, this is even more likely in my opinion.

Good luck. It shouldn't be too big of a deal.
