    almost finished should be tomorrow. got motor back on today and it wont start. Has spark and everything but acts like its flooding it will fire with starting fluid and then dies out. Taking carb apart tomorrow think have stuck jet or something there.

    bassteaser1 Feared by all that swim

    It seems like carbs can be a big problem with outboards.Changing and properly gapping my plugs made a huge difference on mine.

  3. what kind of motor? 2 or 4 cycle?
