    Re: BF225 Issue

    That's great!

    Remember to drain that VST whenever you pull your 100 hour maintenance and at the beginning and end of each boating season. And the next time you have a chance, put some anti-seize...

    Re: Barn find: twin 225's with 30 hours

    If you have the right equipment, you can measure the play in the crank shaft by gently prying up the flywheel. Maximum play = 0.0186 inches or 4 mm . With only 30 hours, I suspect that there is no...

    Re: Barn find: twin 225's with 30 hours

    Also, since you're not concerned with warranty, use 25W-40 FC-W oil - 8.2 quarts with new filter. That will go a long way to saving your thrust bearing.

    And get a Helm shop manual. You're likely...

    Re: Barn find: twin 225's with 30 hours

    2003's with only 30 hours is going to have significant issues. These engines do not take kindly to long set ups. The bearings are all likely dry, so you may want to get some good batteries, pull the...

    Re: 2007 Honda bf225 no spark

    The parts diagrams for Honda outboards are the same everywhere. Here in the US I've had the best experience with www.boats.net. They're competitively priced, fast shipping, and generally helpful....

    Re: BF225 Issue

    Most of the big box auto supply parts stores should have the 6 mm adapter. Did you check the primer bulb for collapsing?

    Also, check your fuel line where it goes through the big black grommet as...

    Re: 2007 Honda bf225 no spark

    It's very rare that these ECU's fail. How do you know that you are not getting pulses to your coils?

    I think that these coils are activated by a negative pulse from the ECU. With the key switch...

    Re: BF225 Issue

    If you have not already done so and assuming it's a fuel feed issue, start with the basics.

    Have you completely drained the VST? If not do so. Charge the fuel pressure by turning on your key...
  12. Re: 2004 BF 225 Check engine light on but no alarm

    Yes, test it the same way - the prong with the red/blue wire going to it. It should be you the same results you get at pin 11 if the harness wire is good.

    An auto OBD2 will not work. Here is the procedure for pulling codes and a file telling you what the codes mean.

    Best procedure is to pull codes, then clear them, run the engine for...
  14. Re: BF225 starving fuel : maybe VST float stock closed

    No picture attached.

    Could be several things. Are you using fresh, high-quality fuel?

    Have you added any decarboning chemicals to your fuel? (e.g. Ring Free, or Sea Foam)

    Have you pulled...
  15. Re: 2007 bf 225 steam or condensation at idle?

    Check each fuse - pull it and use an ohm meter across the fuse spades to check for continuity.
  16. Re: 2004 BF 225 Check engine light on but no alarm

    Look at your ECU. There are three big connectors plugged into it. The 26 pin is the top one. Page 5-9 in my manual.
  17. Re: 2007 bf 225 steam or condensation at idle?

    OK, in that case you should have the updated exhaust tubes factory installed. That's the good news.

    If you have evidence of water intrusion in any of the cylinders, then you will likely need to...
  18. Re: 2007 bf 225 steam or condensation at idle?

    That's not much to go on for diagnosing why it won't start. If it just died outright, I would suspect an electrical problem. If it died slowly, missing and generally acting up, it's likely a fuel...
  19. Re: 2004 BF 225 Check engine light on but no alarm

    With key switch off, hook up the positive probe of your voltmeter to that pin #11 coming from the ECU. Hook negative probe to engine ground. Have someone turn on the key switch while you watch the...
  20. Re: 2004 BF 225 Check engine light on but no alarm

    Go to the 26 pin connector on the engine and find the pin with the red/blue wire going to it - it's pin #11. Pull the connector apart and check the pins for corrosion, bent, or otherwise messed up....
