Doesn't miss a beat


Now 7 years old, my DT40 hasn't missed a beat. Serviced every two years just fill it up and go. Quicksilver oil has worked fine. My DT40 starts first time on cold starts at the ramp, just give it revs and choke. Not the most fuel efficient or quiet motor but it is a two-stoke and a good option if you are after something cost-effective and reliable. Saying that tho, I would always recommend a 4-stroke over a two stroke especially at 40HP and above due to efficiency and convenience with refuelling.

Well-used Dt40 starts first turn of key. Compression 125 & 125. Just had it serviced including looking at Fuel lines & carb cleaned, new fuel pump diaphram
Runs well up to 3500rpm forever, no overheating etc, but as soon as we wind it over 4000rpm in 20 seconds it splutters and stalls. re-prime the bulb and it starts straight away and will run happily - up to 3500rpm . We thought the fuel pump was faulty & so replaced it. Any ideas, please?

Try a new fuel line, I’ve had them deteriorate internally and restrict fuel flow.
