if you can run wide open and dies unless you pull the choke check, the fuel pump and the filter in it. Sounds like the motor isn't delievering the fuel to where it needs to go. If you get it wide open and pump the fuel bulb, and it runs fine, the fuel pump is shot.

If you pump the fuel bulb and there is no difference then you prolly have water in the carb. So to take the carb off isn't a real big job, you just take it off and dump the water out of it...


Water comes from the tank, BECUASE condinsation over winter builds up and sits under that gas where your line comes from because water is heavier than gas, and vice versa, There for you could have started the engine and sucked enough water in the carb to make a difference in the way it runs... let me know if that helps,

PM ME

I'm at the end of hwy7 @ the 100/7/46 intersection, but will be happy to bring it down after I try cleaning the carb myself. The bad thing is I won't know if it's fixed or not until I actually put it in the water as it runs fine when I hook it up to a hosepipe.

I take all of my outboards to Lawrenceburg Marine , and let Steve Mann look at it. He is the master mechanic and they don't charge an arm and a leg to fix it right.
I'll never have a backyard mechanic work on a outboard to save a buck. I had one guy screw a motor up , and I had to take it to Steve to get it fixed right.

Do they have pool there that they run the motor in? Would it be easier to leave the motor on the boat and leave it all with them? or just take the motor?

They could probably answer those questions better than I could . ;\) I had a motor with similar symptoms (it wouldn't run under power, but would hooked up to a hose) and it was the fuel pump.
They fixed it for me.
