Tuning any kind of motor is typically a complex job and usually left to experts.

  •   Ask a mechanic

If you are unsure how to complete the job, it is definitely recommended that you consider getting a mechanic to do the job. Not only do they have the necessary knowledge but a mechanic will also have the correct tools to make the job as simple as possible. Not having the correct tools can make a job such as this surprisingly difficult.

  •   Seek expert advice
If you are considering doing this job yourself, it is best to consult a specific website which specializes in motor tune ups and similar jobs. There are expert writers on such sites who offer advice and tips and can answer any questions you may have.

There are also forums where you can discuss any problems you are having and potentially hundreds of people are available to help with your query.

  • About outboard motors

An outboard motor is a motor designed to be attached to the outside of a boat. It consists of an engine, a gear box, a jet drive and a propeller which is placed in the water and pushes against the water to drive the boat forwards.

Outboard motors are particularly useful on boats because they can be taken off the boat while the boat is being stored or when repairs need to be made.
