Re: fixing two Century (or at least one)

These carbs are not designed to “idle” at 0 throttle as they don’t have a kill switch. When throttle is at nothing, engine should cut out. Raising and lowering needle height will cause the engine to run richer or leaner(fuel air mix), I believe.

Only on the BBC!

Walked past the telly today and spotted this! An old propeller from an unnamed outboard that was being upcycled into a table.

Re: fixing two Century (or at least one)

Exhaust tube is chrome on brass from seagull, doubt it was a replacement. “Soot” you were talking about was probably pitting in the chrome, by removing it you have removed the chrome layer instead of just any top layer dirt.

Re: It won’t start! EFNR44B7

As Charles suggested previously, you could use bubble mixture to find out if it’s the casings without having to strip it.

Degraded fuel would explain issues with starting and yet being able to run on its own once it’s going as well.

Re: Mine Won't Start Either....

Yep 2 and a 1/2 turns below will definitely not help! Make sure it’s flush with the slide, run it at 10 to 1 and you’ll be laughing.

Re: Mine Won't Start Either....

Interesting one, are you using the correct fuel mix for the jet in your carb as some have been switched around?
