A reliable outboard motor is the difference between powerful navigation of waterways or a boat that requires rowing back to the dock. Outboard motor maintenance is an integral part of owning a motorboat, and a reliable fuel tank and fuel filter will hold you in good stead for an enjoyable time on the water. Here are some handy tips for maintaining your vessel.
When should I check and clean my outboard engine?
Your outboard motor should be cleaned after every use. This includes flushing the engine with clean water after returning home and prior to storing your boat for its next use. You should also test the engine if it has been unused for more than two months. Make sure your boat is tuned up prior to the beginning of the boating season. If you use your motorboat often, it is advisable to give it a tune-up twice per year.
What outboard motor parts should I check?
All moving parts should be checked after every outing. Turn the motor off, remove the outer covering and look for water seepage or leaks in hoses and fuel lines. Water infiltration will cause internal motor damage and can prevent the motor from running. If your motor is clean but still unreliable, you may need to change the oil filter or spark plugs.
What type of fuel, fuel tank and fuel filters should I use?
The type of fuel you use will depend on the motor, whether 2-stroke or 4-stroke. The risk of water entering the engine compartment is common, possible resulting in corrosion. Fuel sediment and condensation can also cause corrosion, so it is advisable to use a fuel additive that provides a vapor coating for protecting the engine. Anaconda has a range of external fuel tanks and fuel filters for various makes and models of motorboats. Here are a few great product ideas.
