MAX4Utah wrote:I dug an old 1975 Johnson outboard out of the basement. I rebuilt the carb, New fuel lines, New fuel pump gaskets, spark plug and new impeller. It starts up fine but doesn't stay running? It seems to be sucking air or not sealing properly where the fuel line from the tank connects to the motor and just stalls out after about 45 sec. To a minute. Any thought or ideas?
They didn't make a 7hp in 1975,so what is your model #
If you did a good job on the carb,fuel pump and lines I would look elsewhere. Motor should run for 3-4 min with what fuel is in the carb bowl from when you pumped the carb full with primer bulb. Maybe check Ignition.
There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.
