Re: Outboard Issue
You say it won't idle for long - does it run at higher RPM's?
If so adjust the idle to where it will run.
Forgive me for asking the obvious - but you didn't mention them:
Is the choke released (not just in, but really, you might have a bad linkage).
Check the air filter (remove it and try).
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
