Re: New Honda 2.3 outboard not running

Is it a new outboard, or used?
Sadly a used outboard could be suffering from a lacquered carb bowl. If it's new, then someone would need to eat it!

I won't start anyone on WHY it's lacquered, but lets just say run it dry every time you use it (once it's running well again).
