Fallguy1000's review of Yamaha 2.5 HP Four Stroke


“Carb jets too small”

Written on: 09/05/2019 by Fallguy1000 (1 review written)

Well, the title says it all.

The big trouble with this engine is the jets are thin like a human hair.

And if anything gets in them; they won't run right. That includes varnished fuel.

You can imagine my surprise when the motor would not start the second spring of use. And I was low on gas on my main tank! And I ran all the fuel out in the fall!

The solution is to only use pristine fuel, high octane is good, non-ethylene is best, then never dry run the engine. Keep fuel in it and always make sure to run the engine every 6 months, 4 preferred.
