I purchased a used 25 HP Johnson outboard (J25RLCDC) 1986 model formerly a rope start converted to electric start. Can't cold start without removing hood, turning the red primer solenoid lever to the manual position and pumping the fuel line bulb. My first step was to check the solenoid for power. Yes, the primer solenoid does click when key is on and pushed in. So I tried removing the small fuel line from the solenoid to the carb. It squirts gas 4 ft when solenoid in manual position and fuel line bulb is squeezed. However, it does NOT squirt fuel when red lever in normal position (pointing to back of solenoid) and key is turned to on position and pushed. At this point is should squirt fuel, correct? The line is pressurized and bulb is rock hard. Now to confuse me more, with engine running, when I remove the hose and push the key in it squirts fuel 4 ft. Please help. Stumped!
