I have an 89' 9.9 Johnson that I've recently done a TON of work on to get back into shape. Now I'm having issues with keeping it running. Here's whats going on.
- It runs but it needs to be choked
- If you push the choke in, it dies after a few seconds
- The Carb was taken apart and cleaned thoroughly
- Fresh gas and oil (50:1)
- The fuel line connections leaked a decent amount (due to 20-30 degree temps)
I can keep the motor running as long as I want but it needs to be choked (1/2-1/3) and it's much easier to control at higher RPMs. I did this until it warmed up and no change.
Any suggestions?!?! Thanks!
