Default Re: outboard trouble

I have a 70 hp Johnson, which is a 1984. I would check the cable settings and fuel settings. I think you have flooded the engine while trying to start it. I cleaned my carborators with a carb cleaner. Make sure you follow instructions on the can. Once I cleaned them the engine started a lot better. Johnsons have a bad reputation of carbon build up in the carborator. Especially if you idle a lot or are trolling.
