Trying to get a newly aquired 1966 Johnson Caprice back on the water. After tinkering with it for a few days I got the engine to crank and spark restored. Also got the electric fuel pump pumping again. The engine did start for a short few seconds and then the the fuel began to pour from the carburator. Looks like the gaskets or needle/seats are dried out/bad.
The local boat dealer could get some carb parts, but not a rebuild kit. They were also not to helpful on agreeing to do a rebuild of the carb. I guess because of the parts scarcity.
Any ideas from the group on a parts source or a rebuild shop? The boat has an OMC 90HP V4 2 cycle. Engine number is DU-13ER.
