Johnson 3

The 3hp Johnson 2 stroke is a twin cylinder motor. Figure out a way to get the cover off, drill the bolt out if you have to, and put new plugs in it. Then put fresh gas with 50 to 1 oil mix and try it. All those need is fuel and spark and they will run forever. Try everything else before tackling a carb rebuild.
