Ski-Stall

As is customary with many skiers when your done with a set you tap the top of your head, pull out very hard to the side and at the same time the driver goes to neutral, after some kinetic energy disipates driver and skier are virtually next to another. Well, on my boat 87, 351 carb, when we do this it always stalls. I'm curious for you guys and gals with older boats if your's stalls?

Is it hard to restart? Does the exhaust smell of unburned gas when you do restart? Sounds like the fuel delivered during higher RPM running is creating a situation of too rich from suddenly going to idle. Have you tried a slower transition to idle?

No, it's not hard to restart, it fires right back up. Their isn't any smell either. We could try a slower transition, I'll let you know how it works out. I'm going out tomorrow. Thanks.

Brian- has it always done this or just recently started? Has the idle RPM dropped/been readjusted lately? Any problem with top speed at/near WOT?

Mark-That's right no one is as cool as Doug!

Jim,

It's always done that. No, the top end etc. is all normal. It's not a huge deal just thought I would ask.

You've got the 4010, Mark. And yes, I'm pretty cool.

Brian, mine doesn't do that, but we've never really gotten the move down perfectly as my driver doesn't do the move quickly enough. Working on it though.

You're turning the boat to the left, correct? Which side is the fuel pickup on? What's your fuel level like when you experience this? Quarter tank or below? My Jeep used to stall when I'd back up the driveway and idle for more than 15 seconds, unless I had more than 1/3 tank in it.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I don't know, if she turns. As bad as this sounds I rarely drive, because I'm either behind or instructing. The pick up is on the left I think. But, if it's on the left you would theoretically want to turn to the right. The centrifugal force would push the fuel to the left. My tank RARELY gets below half. I fill it everytime we come back from the lake.
