I have a similar problem. The best guess is the float. Don't have my service manual yet so I'm interested to hear your findings. If the carbs are just dirty I'd try running some Sea Foam through and see if that clears things up a bit. ________________________________ From: Justin DeSantis <duc1098desmo@...> To: Evinrude & Johnson Boats of the 1960's and 70's <omc-boats@...> Sent: Thursday, September 17, 2009 11:21:09 AM Subject: Re: [OMC-Boats] She let me down... I hope not. I really don't want to have to lay out anymore money right now, even if it's not much. I'm going out now to take a look. I'll report back with my findings. Thanks guys.
