Replying to:Engine choking/quitting on RL24 with picture
Seeking a solution to a problem I have come across with the engine unexpectantly cutting out. I am running a Yamaha 8Hp 2 stroke which has an exhaust vent situated below the engine cowling (see pic). Have a hunch that the smoke being emitted from the upper exhaust outlet is collecting within the engine well and is smothering the engine through its air intake. This has happened only when running with the breeze or stationary with no breeze therefore no flushing out the exhaust fumes. Did cause some concern when the engine just cut out coming into a ramp one day. Has anyone else come across this problem and better still does anyone have a solution. I have considered rigging an exhaust pipe to remove the exhaust fumes from the engine well. Rgds Craig
