  • 2 hp johnson colt (carb problem)

    I have a question I was hoping that someone could help me with. I have a 2 hp johnson colt, I have had this think in and out of the shop with no luck. I'm having a problem getting it to idle down, or idle anywhere past half throttle. My biggest problem is that the carb is leaking around the high speed needle. I have had the carb dunked, carb kits put in, but now help. Any ideas?

    I have found that those carbs can use more packing washers around the needle than what the manual calls for.The packing washers are available seperately.

      found my one of the problems, the high speed needle was really loose. The original packing was shot, which caused a lean condition and caused it to leak. Now the idiling problem. Thank you for the reply. I appreciated it.
