I have the same engine on my 16 ft boat and during last year operated OK.
Few week ago suddenly lost the accelartation and power. Idling was high and engine was staling.
Since that I:
Cleaned all carbs,including rebuilding with replacment kit, all new spark plugs
Checked electrical system Ok
Checked coompression all 3 cyl betweeen 125 and 130
Checked fuel pump and valves OK
Engine do the same: high idling with tendency to staling, takes long time to plane and then rpm are not stable.
Have someone experience similar?
