What Are These Lines For And What Would You Call Them?

Recommended Posts

They go to each clynider and Idk what goes through them, it seems like a little bit of oil from the oil you mix with the gas I assume? What woukd you call them? Are they replacable or do they connect to a certain part and you can't just replace the lines?

The one going to the upper clynider has a small leak and I wanna replace it, that's why I'm asking.

I'm talking about the black lines going right behind the throttle from under the carb to the clyniders.

And another quick question because I feel like I'm already making to many threads.... What could cause a starter to get stuck? My engines starter will sometimes get stuck and if you just barely move it then it will work like a charm, after awhile it will get stuck again.

Maybe a bad starter solenoid, or maybe the starter is on the way out.

I wouldn't think its the solenoid because its brand new... But I really hope my starters not pooping out on me. Anyway to know for sure if the starters going bad?

Sounds like a burnt spot on the starter, if it stops at the bad spot it does not work. Move it a little and it will get enough of a connection. There used to be rebuild kits but I do not know if you can get those anymore since it usually is cheaper/easier to just put a new one on.

The started getting "stuck" is probably just the brushes worn out and not making good contact. Most of the time they are spot welded in so they have to be replaced by a start/alternator repair shop.

The hoses you are referring to are probably the recirculation hoses. Gas has a tendency to separate from the air stream and puddle up in certain places in a two stroke motor. The bottom of the boost port is one of those places and they put the hoses there to pull it out. To keep large droplets of gas from getting into the cylinder that will not get properly burned, it is sucked back into the intake manifold where it can get remixed in the air stream again. If it's leaking, it needs to be replaced, it can cause a lean condition on that cylinder.

As for replaceable, they are on the OMC/BRP motors, I would assume they are on the mercs. That should just be a nipple on the block at the cylinder and the other end will probably be the recirc valve. This makes it so the fuel will only travel in one direction. DO NOT try blow into the valve, a lot of them can be damaged if you do. They are usually tested with the intake off and dropping alcohol in them.

What does running lean mean? Because the engine backfires a little sometimes and I figured that must be causing it...

Thanks for the help ill try to replace them, would it be okay to use the engine while that hose is leaking?

It only backfires out of the water though, never had it do it while it was in the water...

You can not base how an engine runs when running on a hose. It has to be in the water at its normal depth if it was on the back of a boat sitting in water. The water creates a back pressure and the motor is not going to idle/run properly without that back pressure, so never try to adjust carbs etc while on a hose.

Lean means it's getting too much air and not enough gas. Lean at low rpm/idle will make it sneeze and spit back through the carbs. Lean at high rpm can make the piston domes hot enough to melt the centers out, making it go kaboom, and requiring a major rebuild.

As for running it, I would be a little Leary about that. I have seen more than one leaking recirc line melt a piston.

You'd only be a little leary about possibly blowing your engine up? Lol I think I'm taking it out tomorrow but after that I'm gonna let it sit untill we fix that, you've successfully scared me hahaha
