    are you saying the boat rises and falls with the speed of the motor staying the same or is it cutting itself back to idle and you have to drop back on the throttle and starting all over again.

    Is the motor just falling on its face once you hit WOT?

    as in if it is at 3/4 throttle in runs like it is at 3/4 throttle but once you go to WOT it bogs down like it is at 1/4 throttle and loses rpms?

    well let me try to clear this up. the boat speeds up but at wot its like the moters rpms drop to about the same as idol and the boat slows down. the moter runs smooth with no missing just no power at wot. although sometimes it will stay up at wot and then its like flipping a switch and cutting the power in half. well thats about the best i can explain it. i have installed new fuel lines and checked for leaks. none found. the primer bulb is also new. new plugs and rectifier.:confused2:and:angry:
