Hey guys I have a 1994 Evinrude 48 SPL on my 21' Pontoon. I just bought the boat this January. The guy I bought it from said the year before the carbs were rebuilt, plugs changed and a steering cable was replaced because the place that did the work broke it. I pulled the Plugs they do look brand new. The outside of the carbs looked really clean. However I am having a problem. It will run fine at higher speed but when I try to idle in forward or reverse it will run 5-10 seconds and shut off. No missing or rough idle or anything. It fires right back up. When I start it I got in the habit of lifting the starting throttle lever because it wont always stay running it just shuts off. Like I said no missing or rough Idle. I run 50:1 with penzoil marine oil I use 93 Octane and Ethanol Fuel that I put some marine stabil in. I thought it was the gas when I bought it but since then I have put around 48 gal through it. Its odd. Some times it will sit and Idle no issues or nothing other times it wont but 98% of the time if I try to Idle in gear I've only got maybe 5-10 Second and it shuts off. I did not check compression yet. Every free second I get I get it on the water Haha. Maybe tonight I'll check the compression and plugs and make sure the plugs are firing good. Also it drips a little bit of oil from the prop not much just maybe 3-5 Drops over a week after parking it. 2 Stroke oil as its black and smells burnt and the gear case oil is full and clean. Any Ideas? Right now its not a huge issue just a inconvenience. Thanks.
