I am at my dad's place in Hide-A-Way Lake and his barge has decided to act up. It starts and idles fine, but when you give it gas it dies out. Any ideas? Naturally, the kids are expecting a day of tubing and fun on the water......Help!!!!!
bang

Motor is a 40 hp force.....unfortunately.

Check the fuel filter. If clean, I'd clean the carb.

Have never seen so much of this same problem. Most of which I am finding is bad fuel. Pull the fuel bowl and check the high speed jet.
