Thanks for this advice. It seems like our forward clutch slips when we throttle up with the boat moving at around 5knots. The previous owner thought it was the prop cavitating- is there a way to know...

Returning to this thread, thanks again for the tips, by the way.

I was given the old carburetor from our A4 by the previous owner and decided to disassemble it to get a better understanding of its operation. When I separated the top and bottom, a small torsion...

My oil pressure works it's way up to between 35-40 psi as the engine gains rpms and works under a load. Occasionally, it stays right at 40, but more often it is on 35. I have attributed this to the...

Thanks for the replies- I have the Moyer Manual and may try adjusting forward at some point later this year. I can't tell from the description whether there is a gasket on the cover plate?
