Re: Temperture problems on BRAND NEW Motor

Most boats require some trim to run efficiently. When you start off, have the trim all the way down and as the boat comes up on plane, trim it out a bit at a time. It takes practice to get the experience to know exactly when to trim and how much. If you trim out too far, the motor could overheat.

 

Take along an experienced boater, one familiar with outboards, to show you some hints and "how-to's" of boating. Perhaps your dealer can help you out.

 

Also take a Coast Guard or Power Squadron boat safety course.

The dealer is clueless on what might be the cause of my overheating 115 HP. So, they are flying in a mechanic directly from BOMBARDIER Canada.

 

He will take a look at the motor and try to fix it !

Re: Temperture problems on BRAND NEW Motor

FINALY !!!!!!!!!!!

 

The mechanic from Bombardier found the problem with my overheating, at low rpm, of my 115 HP....

 

Munafacturers default on the Poppet valves, which didn't work properly at low RPM (1000-2000).

 

Now the max temp at HIGH RPM is around 115-121 F and at low RPM around 155 F....

 

I'll now be abble to boat with no wories !!!

 

Happy Boating !
