RE: A couple newbie questions about my San Juan




Is it a 2s or a 4s motor?

Starting mine (cylinder 2s):
1 plug in fuel line
2 pump fuel bulb (inline) until some pressure build up occurs (this is the tricky part), without priming the line and fuel system it doesn't have fuel (this might be what you experienced).
3 choke on. throttle at idle.
4 pull starter cord to start.

If I prime it right with the bulb it starts right off and I turn off the choke.  If I over prime it, well then it floods and it takes several pulls to start and I turn off the choke right away.

Cheers 
Still working on mine.....ARG not enough time in the day... But it's getting closer to launch.

Subject: A couple newbie questions about my San Juan


Hi again all! We got 'Amarillo' home to Daytona Beach
and put her in the water last weekend. Of course, that
led to the first of many projects  :)

1. The outboard wouldn't start of course. It sounded
gas starved, so I will install a new fuel line/hand
pump and see if that corrects the problem. I know the
motor works and we had gas in the tank. Any other
suggestions?

2. The tough one: our working jib was luffing all over
the place when we pointing close to windward. The
lines are set up outboard along pullies attached to
the toe-rail. We were thinking of repositioning the
lines further inboard so we could tighten up the jib
and keep it from snapping and flapping. Has anyone
done this? Is there a better solution?

Thanks!. I hope to have some pics of my beautiful boat
up soon! I'll let you all know....
