Re: Carb(fuel flow?) issues with Honda 7.5 outboard
If it were me, I'd start by pulling the carb off, dropping the bowl then the float and needle valve then I'd spray some carb cleaner and blow the heck out of it with compressed air and put it back together. A good many times, that will clear a piece of crap that got stuck in the low speed circuit. If it doesn't work, then it's more work and more troubleshooting, but you have to start somewhere and may as well try the easy stuff first.
edit: What Whorne said even sounds easier.
