I have a 1977 starcraft with johnson 115hp outboard motor. I know how to work on cars but kinda new with boats. This is my first boat I got last year. The boat did sit for a couple years before I got it. I emptied and cleaned the tank and replaced all the gas lines and im getting good gas pressure. I was going to replace the plugs but when I pulled them out they looked new so I left them in.
Anyway, my problem is it will run at idle but when I try to put it in gear it will stall out? I start it with starting fluid and had it running at idle for 20 minutes or so. Then when I try to put it in gear it just stalls out. If anybody has any idea please let me know. thanks.
