So I finally got the chance to take the boat out today after getting it ready and flushing/testing it at home. It started up great at the dock..peeing water...running smooth...etc When this alarm started going off from the throttle control case. I imediately shut down the engine waited a bit then started it again...no alarm this time.
So I took it out in the bay and on step WOT ...was running like a champ for about 5 min when the alarm went off again. It was still running great with the alarm sounding..I shut it down took off the cowling, the head were warm but not hot. I tried to start it up again and it would spin but not start. I couldnt keep the primer bulb firm either which I thought was wierd. I eventually gave up and had to kicker it back slowly to the harbor.
I am very new to boating so hopefully somebody has an idea whats going on? I do not have a manual yet.
Of course with all the beeping and what not that I heard from then till now I cant remember if it was a constant beep or if it was a beep beep pause beep beep...I will try again tomorrow. Any help would be great!
Oh and its a 1992 120 hp Evinrude no VRO just premixed with gas
