Thanks for replying Ron I will check those things. I did replace the coil 6 or 8 months ago, but I will check to see if it is getting Hot.

Here are a couple things to check given your observations:
1) Ign. module could be doing this, check for spark at one of the plugs when it stops running
2) Ign coil could be going out (overheating)
3) Fuel starvation from a blocked fuel vent (crack the fuel fill when she quits & listen for a vacuum sound or run with it cracked for a few minutes)
4) angled base on carb is normal
5) New carb choke way out of adjustment (staying closed)

Tim Miller here again, I was wondering if the electronic ignition module could be going bad which in turn is getting hot which could be making the motor shut off at the 4 minute mark. I had bought a new marine 4 barrel Holley carburetor a couple months ago, and when I installed it the boat ran well, however the last few times I started it the boat will only run for a short time before shutting off. I know that the carburetor didn't have an angled mounting plate on before, so I'm not thinking that that could be the issue. Because the carb. does sit at a pretty good angle. Please help me with any insight that you may have. Tim in Tampa

General American Skier Discussions / 79 18' skier coil part #
« Last post by Ripleyboater on August 02, 2020, 05:09:43 PM »
Does anybody have the part number for the distributor coil on a '79 18' skier... it has a commander 351... the coil that was on it was from Napa im not sure that it was the correct one.  I replaced it with another Napa coil that called for a different resistor it fired right up but idles at a lower rpm and needs to be warm to stay idling. I would like to get the verify the part number before I get another one any info would be appreciated  Thanks

Boat Maintenance - American Skier / '86 advance platform brackets
« Last post by GTRiem on August 01, 2020, 06:31:56 AM »
Hello all,
New to forum and American skiers.
This boat is in great shape, got it a few days ago. It drives and runs great.
The swim platform brackets are loose at the transom and I did a preliminary check to see if I could access the bolts.
loosened the fuel tank enough to try and reach my hand under to feel for an opening... is there access to the bolts behind or under the tank? I did not feel any openings.
If its a easy fix I'll tackle now, if not I'll wait until end of season and do it later.
thanks,
GTR
