    "I have a 5HP 2 stroke, the motor will start and run for about 30 minutes to get me out of the harbor and where I need to go but when I try starting the motor to get back in. It just won't start. This has happened time and time again. It will start, run for a while, then won't start again for a whole day. WTF!? I need some Guru advice! Changed the fuel line, fuel filter, cleaned the carb, cleaned all the screw down contacts, replaced the spark plug."

    Default "I have a Nissan NS5B- 2 Cycle

    "I have a Nissan NS5B- 2 Cycle 5HP. The engine worked fine all summer until yesterday when it suddenly stalled after runninng full throttle for 5 minutes. It would restart but only run at idle speed. Any accelaration would cause it to stall. The fuel is OK, internal tank filter OK, fuel flow to the carb OK, I cleaned the carburator and it looked OK. The problem still persists. Anyone have Ideas about what is going on? What next to check out?"
