I have a 1990 115 Yahama that is very hard to start the first time for the day after that it starts on the first crank.
Once started it runs good, it's on a 18 ft Skeeter with a full tank of fuel and me it will run 44+ so I hate to mess with it too much.

Also the gauges go not work, The gauge lights work but not the tack or speedo.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I should start fixing?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

Tach needs 12v, a ground and a sender wire from the regulator. Reset the pole setting on the tach. The speedo needs no voltage except for the light it works off of water pressure at a port on the lower unit or a mounted peeto on the transom. These Yamahas start better if you pump the bulb up real firm. I have had to adjust the solenoid that closes the choke butterfly`s. You have to remove the air silencer so you can see the choke butterfly`s, hit the choke to see if they are closing all of the way. Adjust as needed.

Gary, thanks for your advice. I readjusted the choke and now it starts up with just a few seconds of cranking!

Thanks a million!
