    Re: 9.5HP, what's that noise?

    OK, the spark plug tester arrived. No it wont produce a spark with 5/16" gap, the widest gap it can produce spark is about 3/16", So what's the next step? Take the flywheel off?

    "And does spark jump a gap of 5/16" on both leads" Sorry racerone, I don't fully understand this question, too many jargons, would you mind explain a little more in detail?

    Re: 9.5HP, what's that noise?

    I forgot to mention, I tested compression, upper 70, lower 63, could that be the problem?

    Re: 9.5HP, what's that noise?

    Gear oil just replaced, plugs are also brand new NGK, I guess it's time to pull the flywheel? But I am just confused why this happens only when I change throttle, otherwise it runs as smooth as silk.

    Re: 9.5HP, what's that noise?

    Eeee... that's the last thing I wanted to do. Does it explain the hesitation though? other than when I adjust the throttle, the engine runs fine 99% of the time.

    9.5HP, what's that noise?

    I noticed when I adjust the throttle(both up and down), the engine sometimes make weird noise, start vibrating and slows down for a few seconds, then smooth out.

    Re: Start without choke?

    Thanks! yeah the engine does seem to work ok. Except it's a bit hard to get it start when hot, sometimes takes 6-7 pulls, but not sure if that's related to the choke anyway.

    Start without choke?

    My evinrude 9.5 seems to be working fine, but I noticed I don't have to choke it even for a cold start, As a matter of fact, if I choke it, it won't start, is that bad? Feel like this engine needs a...

    Installing tachometer on my Evinrude

    Thinking of wiring one of those cheapo tachometer, For the two cylinders I guess I only need to worry about one spark plug wire? Is it even possible for the two cylinders' RPM to go out of sync?
