I recentley acquired an old Lauson outboard from a friend. I think its from the 50's or 60's. I can't get it to run. I changed the oil, spark plug, drained the old gas and put new in, changed the lower end oil, cleaned the carb (choke and throttle function smoothly), and the kill switch looks ok considering when its pulled out in the run position, the metal to metal contact is broken. It also seems to have compression because it creates suction at the carb and spark plug hole. Im out of ideas. Its a 4 cycle and not water cooled. Sounds like it wants to start and kinda chugs when the cord is being pulled but wont start.
Thanks so much!
