Johnson outboard

I also have a small Johnson (err, that doesn't sound right!) outboard that I purchased from a consignment store. Remember there is choke that needs to be pulled out to start and then pushed in once it catches. We had to completely overhaul the carb, it was all gunked up. Also cleaned the needle valve, replaced the spark plug and used new gas with the right oil mixture. It purrs like a kitten now and runs fine.

cheers,
