(Carburetor Adjustment - Single S/S Adjustable Needle Valve)

Initial setting is: Slow speed = seat gently, then open 1-1/2 turns.

Start engine and set the rpms to where it just stays running. In segments of 1/8 turns, start to turn the S/S needle valve in. Wait a few seconds for the engine to respond. As you turn the valve in, the rpms will increase. Lower the rpms again to where the engine will just stay running.

Eventually you'll hit the point where the engine wants to die out or it will spit back (sounds like a mild backfire). At that point, back out the valve 1/4 turn. Within that 1/4 turn, you'll find the smoothest slow speed setting.

Note: As a final double check setting of the slow speed valve(s), if the engine has more than one carburetor, do not attempt to gradually adjust all of the valves/carburetors at the same time. Do one at a time until you hit the above response (die out or spit back), then go on to the next valve/carburetor. It may be necessary to back out "all" of the slow speed adjustable needle valves 1/8 turn before doing this final adjustment due to the fact that one of the valves might be initially set ever so slightly lean.

Probably best to go back to who you bought it from to get the code. Otherwise you will need to visit a dealer and pay them to get a code.

Best to follow directions or even better, have a professional install it.

It would help knowing what you are working on, motor type, boat model, etc.... I suspect you have an inboard engine and there are flappers to protect the intake while sitting at a dock. When running there are small props to push the water through the engine to keep it cooled and one of the flappers has come loose. But that's just my guess based on the info provided.

I don't think there were flushing screws on those old motors. Use muffs with fresh water from a hose and run the engine to flush out the water system.

I usually see 14.5 volts as a norm, but based on this site, you can see up to 15 volts for charging. If you are at 14.8, are you basing your overcharge on that or is there something else going on like boiling the water in the battery?

Sounds like the gas isn't flowing freely into the carb. Check to see if the gas lines are open, no obstructions. Also check the gas tank, I there is a screen on the gas inlet tube and that might be plugged.

50:1 ratio for the Suzuki outboard motor

I don't think you can reset it. Whatever the problem is, that needs to be corrected otherwise it will just go back into guardian mode. On a mercruiser forum, people posted that once the specific problem was corrected, the unit turned off guardian mode automatically.

Should be on the mounting bracket. See photo below. If it's not there, you will probably have to call the manufacturer for identifying the model.

Sounds like the prop is cavitating when air gets by the prop. Perhaps this is happening when the water is more rough and the boat is bouncing more.

The motor according to Johnson is the J200CX4SR and it weighs 580 pounds

I don't know much about the air shot. I do know that Wellcraft was one of the best boat building companies. Since the hull design really didn't stick around, it may have been more expensive to make with some improvement in how the boat planes and takes waves. Kind of like a tri-hull.
