- Dec 1, 2009Pete,This summer when Identity Crisis finally hit the water, I was similarly greeted with hard starting and black smoke in quantities not seen since a 1950's truck stop. I put some diesel fuel treatment in the tank and gradually the smoke diminished. So, I'd go with some injector cleaner first.DaveOn Dec 1, 2009, at 6:11 AM, bruceheyman@... wrote:
Sorry you weren't able to enjoy the boat much this summer. Assume you've changed the filter to make sure critters have set up house.
Otherwise you are probably on the right track with the injectors.

When I got out, it wouldn't rev over 1500 and was pushing out plumes of black smoke. I'm thinking dirty/leaky injectors. Any other thoughts or sugggestions?PeteSolaceS30 200
