Re: New Honda 2.3 outboard not running

Sounds like it is starving for fuel. Suggest you make sure the tank vent is not plugged. If not, sounds like some debris got into the carb, or the gas evaporated, leaving goo behind. Maybe some carb cleaner at about 50% gas mix. Let it set for a day or two then try gain. If no go, time to clean out the carb, thin wire and compressed air. Suggest you drain the carb if it is not going to be used for a week or so
