Replying to:Outboard in well
I recently purchased second hand a Honda 10hp. four stroke outboard for my RL24. While this outboard is on the very upper end of weight and power for an RL24 it provides a comfortable cruising option for longer trips in Moreton Bay and Fraser Island. I have had the engine fully serviced and it was returned with positive reports. I am experiencing erratic revving on full throttle. On full throttle the engine will run at half revs the then jump up to full revs then return to half revs..and so on. The outboard just fits in the outboard well with the head blocking most of the top of the well opening, which may be the cause of my problem. The outboard may be choking in its own exhaust fumes? I am advised that some outboard manufacturers offer an exhaust kit to vent away exhaust from the ait intake, Honda do not. Has anyone experienced their outboard choking or stalling while at full throttle in the well?
