Let it dry out a day or so, perhaps in the sun or a warm place. Try again. If it still won't start, try to find a fuel line or fuel jet and inject some compressed air in to blow it out a bit. Good Luck!

Check to see that you have proper air flow through the cowlling. It sounds like it's not getting enough air to the breather.

1964 johnson 9.5 hp outboard runs but no reverse. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Pull the stablizer pins and row back to shore, lol j/k. Did you check the linkage to make sure it was working properly, look on the motor itself not on the feel of it..
