Hi all,

I have an Evinrude 115hp (think its a 76-78 model) that will start up and idle fine on and off the water. After giving it some throtle the engine would die after 20 or 30 yards. I have taken the carbs out and it looks great. Is there some sort of heat sensor that would turn it off if it gets to hot? Could it be the water pump? Or maybe miss match fuel line? Please help! Thank you
