Re: Outboard Starting Procedure

I too have my doubts about the 1/2 choke full throttle bit.

Most 2 strokes will want full choke and 20 - 25% throttle when cold.

The only reason I would use full throttle was if I had flooded the stupid thing.

Btw my 30 year old Johnson 15hp 2 st started third pull when cold on full choke 1/5 throttle and first pull no choke all day after that.

My current 18 hp 2 st Tohatsu needs choke on any start when it has been sitting for 30 mins or more.
