    1995 Wave Venture fuel problem

    I pulled my ole boat out of my FLA. warehouse after a few years in storage. I've been through the carbs and replaced all diaphams filters etc. Fuel lines are clear. Filter works fine. Pulser working. Fuel source swith is clear.
    Compression a bit low at 100 psi but I'm ok with that.
    Starts easy and idles great. Tacs up fine when connected to the hose.
    In the lake over 1/4 trottle kills it. Starts back instantly always. If i let it idle only for about 30-45 seconds it come out of the hole strong, plains and then dies after about 3-4 seconds. I'm stumped.
    I did just change to pre-mix if that may have caused my problem.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Your compression is low, but I think you are running too lean. You may have to re-adjust your carb settings. When you pull the choke half way will it run well?

    I tried employing the choke but it just bogged it down. Thanks for the comment.

    Did you pull the choke half way while on the water under load?

    Have a look at the fuel selector adjuster they gum up some times and they will run out of fuel. Also look at the pulse line to the pump and make sure it doesnt have a hole or crack in it

    I did this morning and your analysis is spot on.
    My real problem is the high end screw on carb #1is frozen up and I had hope an interior cleaning would suffice. Obviously not.
    Any adivise on a corrosion buster? I'm afraid I'll break the brass needle.

    Good suggestion Wax. I've doon those things including replacement of the pulser line.
    My real problem appears to be my frozen high end screw. Thanks for your help.

    Greenhulk has been a great experience but I sure do miss the psell check.

    Highspeed Carb adjustments

    I've replaced the #1 carb with frozen high speed screw and still have the same problem.
    Starting with a factory setting of 5/8 for the #1 carb, I open it an additional 1/4.
    Factory setting for carb # 2 is 1-1/8. I opened it 1/4 also.
    This resulted in no change. Employing the choke still cures the problem.
    Should I continue to open both carbs a additional 1/4 until I have some sort of change?
