    Xr6 bogging Could use some advice

    I just bought this boat a few weeks ago. It's been a little slow out of the hole. 5000 rpms at wide open throttle 50 mph So I switched from a 23 tempest plus to a 21p. Took it out for a test run and rpms and speed were the same???? Pulled the plugs and compression is 120 all the way around. One plug is clean as new. Doesn't appear to be getting any fuel. I'm thinking maybe a stuck float on that carb? Any help or comments are welcome and appreciated. Thanks Steve. 2001 mercury xr6 150 on 18 ' cobra dual console

    Hey Trotax, its really hard to say what might be going on with your engine without physically hearing it run, but I don't think it would perform as well as you say it does only running on 5 cylinders. I wish I could help more but without putting my eyes and hands on it anything else would just be a shot in the dark. If you would like to bring it by my shop I would love to take a look at it for you, but there is only so much I can do through a computer screen. Sorry man.

    Hey castaway Any idea why the plug is so clean? Looks new. The other 5 look normal

    Thanks for the offer catstaway. I found the problem. The connector on the coil had come loose. Running great now
