  • Johnson 4 hp (need help)

    I just picked up a 4 hp johnson seahorse model #4W72S , can someone give me the year? 1972?? I checked it for spark and it looks like i'm getting spark on the top wire but not the bottom.What should i look at to fix this?I got it started and it ran for a few seconds then cut out. After trying for a while more I noticed fuel coming out the front of the carb where the choke plate is . Stuck float???? I would think its getting fuel from the fuel pump or it wouldn't be leaking out the carb. Thanks for the help

    You need to pull the flywheel and clean the points first. If you still have no spakk have the coil tested. Then have the carb,s cleaned and kitted. Sounds like a 1972 long shaft to me. Good luck.
