I've searched all the Boat Buzz with google but I'm still a bit uncertain about how to go about the idle adjustment.
I've rebuilt the carbs with kits and advice from Van Ness and I will consult him on monday, meanwhile I'm trying this on my own.
Three weeks ago put the carbs in and had a spin on the lake. I think the engine definitely runs much better and acceleration no longer stall the engine.
There is a split second delay before it revs up if I floor it as fast as I dare, don't know if that is as it should be.
The actual issue is idling. I idles way too high at about 1000 rpm, which makes docking a challenge.
I suspected the linkage as if I press down with finger the ball joint at the throttle lever then it idles down, I can almost make it stop.
I tried to adjust that, both by loosening the screw that limits the travel and by adjusting the linkage that comes from the steering wheel, meaning adjusting the lever that attaches to the axle that transfers the motion to the actual throttle levers.
I've not touched the idle adjustment screws yet (i.e., I set during the re-assembly at some setting (don't recall exactly how I did that).
Reading from the web one gets just confused with air leaks and what not.
So any advice is welcome while I wait for Monday.
And while I wait for you guys I'll go back to the yard and play with the idle screw.
