Sounds to me liek you're just do a carb overhaul. Seafoam is good stuff and
it might work, but the only sure way to correct carb problems is a complete

Greetings -

I recently bought a 1966 Evinrude Playmate. If I can get this animal up
and running I'll post some action pictures.

So far it has a rebuilt starter, a new water pump, new head gaskets, and
a new gas pump.

I need a voltage regulator, a tilt motor for the outdrive, and some good
luck or maybe advice trying to ungunk the carburetors. It will start
with liberal use of the choke and it requires frequent choking to stay
running. This seems to get a little better as I run it more. With the
throttle wide open and a finger off and on the choke, I can make about 3

I have been advised to run a lot of SEAFOAM through it. Any other ideas?
