A great Yamaha Engineer

Hi I am looking for recommendations for a great Yamaha engineer. I had endless problems last year with my Yamaha F100a Carb engine. I am based in Leigh on sea in Essex but prepared to travel and pay for someone who can solve my issues with my engine. Any recommendations please? Have tried three local engineers with no permanent fix.

Thanks

Stewart

I need to carbs cleaning and balancing and working out why they keep getting bunged up. I have new fuel water separator and new fuel filter.

Bit Far for you but if any help if you took carbs off and sent them to me I could strip check and ultrasonic clean, but there must be someone that could do it closer to you. they are simple to balance if you bought the kit and done it your self. must be a vid on youtube, then you know exactly whats done.

As for keep blocking? if they havnt been cleaned out properly then its just going to keep picking crap out of the carb bowl?

Thanks for all the responses, I have cleared the issue for now and learnt to balance the carbs myself. Taking it for a run this weekend. I may still take you up on the offer of the ultrasonic clean!
