ID:	504417This is a picture of the boat and the jet.Bought a new boat and I'm having having issues with the electric choke. Trying to figure out why it not opening and causing the boat to just load up any suggestions? Thanks guys p.s. Just bought this boat new in the the jet world. Also tried to fill the jet bowl with 90 weight and couldn't get it to take any at all just pressures up and sprays back at me

    Check to see if it has power when you turn the key on.
    Adjust the choke. http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive_...ers_manual.pdf

    I have a suggestion. Pin it open of pull the choke mechanism, including the blade altogether. Unless of course you boat in sob zero weather.

    As mentioned, I wouldn't sweat the choke, and would remove it and the butterfly all together!
    About the "oil" I'm assuming you're removing BOTH plugs when and squirting oil into one until it comes out the other?
    If, it's not taking any, it may be because someone filled it with grease or, prod the holes with something long...it may be cruded-up with silt/sand in which case the bowl should come off to inspect the two bushings, seal and shaft.

    Also > > > no need for high-dollar fancy-pants gear oil in that hole because there's no-gears, just two bushings. The cheapest gear oil is fine, or even in a pinch a thick, cheap straight weight engine oil.

    Here's the deal, that bowl was designed for 'oil'. Now that being said some still install the fitting and push grease in there.
    Before you try the grease rout keep this in mind > there are two somewhat wide bushings the pump shaft goes through. The clearance isn't all that great. Will thick grease ever get between the bushings and shaft, and if it does once the shaft is spinning wouldn't the grease simply be spun away from between the bushings and shaft...me thinks so.

    I think you're way ahead of the game using oil, it'll flow where it's needed to go

    Years ago I bought a used Advantage Jet Boat with a Holley double pumper Carb. It ran for shit. The power valves were blown in my carburetor. Rebuilt the carb with new power valves and the boat ran awesome.
