Recently picked this motor up.
-Compression both cylinders 80 psi (at 4800 ft elev.)
– Carb soaked and cleaned, new Welch plug
– Set Low speed needle in test tank
-Impeller pumping plenty of water, warm, not hot tell-tale
-Starts easy when cold with choke
-Tested it on the boat today, started easy, runs good at all speeds
***Shut motor off. Could not get it to restart.
– Took it home put back in test tank and when it is warmed up it is hard to restart. Will restart with low throttle setting and no choke. Takes 6-8 pulls of the rope.
Is the 80 psi low for this motor? Is that the problem or is it something else?
