Please help with Cajun 160 bass not starting
« on: June 12, 2018, 05:37:02 AM »

Good morning all! Iím new to this forum and to boating in general. I recently acquired a 95 (I think) Cajun 160 pro. I cleaned her up, changed the oil and have thrown about 2.5 gallons of high grade gas. The boat was lay used two years ago and was winterized at that time. The boat will not start. It turns but will not start. Wondering if anyone can help. I figured maybe it is the old gas that was left in there? Didnít seem like there was much/if any in there. I checked the fuel filter and it seemed to look fine. It had some fuel inside of the filter (not sure if that means it is working or shot). Thanks in advance for any insight. Matt

Very first thing to check is your kill switch. Make sure it's attached.

Also be sure to have the muffs and garden hose on if you're on land.

Did you treat your fuel for cleaning out the gummy residue of old fuel? In every gallon of fuel I run is sta-bil fuel stabilizer keeps fuel chemically sound for 2 years rather than 30 day limit out of pump.

But what really makes a difference is the solvent in SeaFoam. $7 at Wal-Mart. $12 at auto parts shops. If you need to clean gumminess out of your tank, fuel lines, and carburetor then use 2 ounces of SeaFoam per gallon of fuel. For regular maintenance use 1 ounce per gallon of fuel.

And to help it get running grab a can of whoop azz. Kidding. A can of starter fluid helps get them going.

Once you get it running let the SeaFoam do its job. My old Yamaha took 3 outings before the SeaFoam got rid of old gum sticking things up in carburetor.

Also check for water in fuel system. A good separator helps.
