Hey guys I was wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. I have a 1997 johnson 150hp fast strike that is "skipping a beat" while I drive it. This is hard to explain so Im going to do the best I can. The engine will pause for just a second then go right back to normal. It is like it looses power then kicks right back up. When it happens the boat slows a little but since the pause is so short the boat speeds right back up. I have heard several diferent ideas of what this could be. Some say power pack some say it is not the power pack. Has anyone ever had this problem or have any guess what is going on. Thanks for any help you can offer.
