Have an apparent fuel problem. Boat has an 86 225 Johnson looper that will not run wide open for more than 1-2 miles. It chokes down and shuts off. It will run 7/8 throttle all day long. Some have said the motor is overheating. After it shuts off it will start after a few minutes. Also, where is the fuel sending unit ? help

Sounds like a lean out on a cylinder, a coil problem, or an electrical problem. Just had same problem on my old montauk, turned out to be a lean out. First thing to do is check compression, then go from there.

I had a similar problem on my Outrage. But the reason was fuel starvation caused by a restriction in the fuel system. Check your primer bulb the next time it happens and see if it is collapsed. On my boat the problem was intermittent, sometimes it worked fine. See the discussion of check valves here: [url][/url

Hey, Big Brother! Glad you made it to the forum! (Good taste in boats runs in the family!) I had a similar problem on my 18.6, and found the problem to be restriction in the elbow that comes out the top of the tank. I removed the entire 8" cover and fitting, and cleaned it out. Likewise, my tank had a couple golf ball sized chunks of something round and would plug the intake at the tank inside bottom - I removed those. Problem is on Glenn's 22', there is just a fitting - no 8" cover to gain access to look in the tank and remove any "golf balls". QUESTION is, is there a place on the tank top where a visual in-tank inspection can take place? ALSO, where is the fuel (electrical) sending unit located? Best, Maverick (Chuck "Weigle")
