Re: Trim Tabs vs. "whaletail"

Adding a StingRay hydrofoil on my 17' Whaler eliminated a similar problem. You may also try raising your outboard up a mounting hole or two. Tabs would be a fantastic addition for many other...

Re: Garmin 498 or 540

Get the 498 unless you are willing to spring for the 545S. The 545 has a fantastic resolution & redraw speed while panning. The 540 is grainy and you have to stop panning every couple seconds to...

Re: Rough Idle under load

PROBLEM SOLVED: Fuel delivery was not the issue. I was using a Flo-Torq II propeller hub that caused this rough idle along with using a heavy stainless steel prop. The addition of the Flo-Torq IV...

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

PROBLEM SOLVED: The addition of the Flo-Torq IV hub with my Revolution 4 prop (heavy stainless steel) completely solved this problem.

Both my marina mechanics as well as the regional Yamaha...

Re: 200 HP Johnson Ocean Pro running rough while in gear

Has it always run rough, or just started recently? Did you get a new prop? If yes, what kind?

Re: Yamaha F150 knocking noise ????????

If it is a Mercury Flo-Torq stainless prop, look into getting a Flo-Torq III hub to dampen/eliminate this rattle. Contact Ken at propgods.com

Re: Prop rattle

What kind of hub do you have? I am having a similar issue with my Yamaha 200 hp with a Rev4 prop. I currently have a Flo-Torq II hub, but I am planning to replace it with a new Flo-Torq IV hub...

Re: SHould I put a fin on my Yammie?

I had a 17' whaler and adding a Stingray hyrdofoil helped a lot in getting up on plane and also to bury the bow into a chop to prevent the hull from slapping.

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

Andy,

After doing some more searching on the internet, it seems a Flo-Torq IV hub kit might eliminate this problem I am having. I already have a Flo-Torq II hub kit. Can I order a Flo-Torq IV...

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

So I received input back from the mechanic. They could not find anything wrong with the engine, but they tried changing props and the problem went away. I had a brand new Mercury Revolution 4 17"P...

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

I took the engine to the local Yamaha dealer for service. They have 6 certified mechanics on site, but they could not determine the problem. They have requested for a technician to come directly...

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

Man, I sure hope not. When I idle into the marina, everyone looks at me funny because the engine is so loud and erratic. My last engine was a 115hp Johnson carbed 2-stroke, and it never sounded...

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

Since my last post, I have re-cleaned the carbs and then decarbed the engine with Seafoam. I did this by spraying a bottle in the throttles while idling, then spraying a bottle in the cylinders and...

Re: Loud knocking at shaking at low RPM (while in gear)

I am following your hunch, and am giving the carbs another cleaning. I finished one this morning before leaving for work. I did find one of the floats was 2mm higher than the other. Now they are...
