Re: motor dies at idle when hot
First reset the timing to specs.No such thing as setting it by ear/touch or the wag system(wild a%# guess).Get a manual.
You mess with the air screw? Turn screw in till it just bottoms(gently) then out 1 and 1/16th turn.
The idle should be 750-800 in gear and warm.
Idle adjustment is with the towershaft.No other way.
Check the pump diapham.The float levels.Check for water in the gas.
Do a compression/spark test.
How old is the waterpump? It might not be keeping it cool enough?J
boats . net worst place to buy parts.
Get towing insurance.Great investment.
