Re: Outboard Issue

Plus 1 on the Seloc manual. My Evinrude 9.9 is the same age as yours. Good book. Found a bunch of stuff online, through many searches, and filled a 5" thick notebook with material.

Do the plugs, and clean the carb. Did that myself, still had problems, only to find a small leak at fuel line connector where it attached to the motor.

Best of Luck!!!!

Re: Outboard Issue

Should you run into this again, you can get a rebuild kit for most carbs. It's also unusual for a carb that small to have problems that can't be solved with a rebuild, or often just a thorough cleaning.

I inherited a circa 1971 Johnson 4 hp from my Grandfather. It had sat in my grandparent's basement, unused, for over 20 years. I pulled out the carb, completely disassembled it, and cleaned all the parts with carb cleaner. The bowl, as I suspected, had not been drained after the last time it was run, and the residual gasoline had become a thick, jelly-like mess. Soaking a few hours and scrubbing a bit removed it. Reassembled and installed the carb, put a new raw water impeller in the lower unit, hung it in a barrel of water and it started on the 4th pull. I still use it on the 14' aluminum boat that it was purchased with.
