It sounds like the oil cutout switch is bad. It is suppose to save your engine from running low on oil. Several things. Engines that use these switches may have two fill plugs. One is higher than the other meaning it has to have more oil to top it off. Next is the angle of the motor when it is on the boat. All the oil will go to the low side of the engine. If the oil shutoff is on the high side it thinks you are out of oil.

Your best bet is ebay for a replacement user manual. Take a look around, you will come across one... For the meantime, gas oil ratio should be 50 parts gas to 1 part oil, i.e. 50:1. General care: Dont go full throttle for any length of time. Cruise of 3/4 throttle... Always flush engine after use in saltwater, including washing down exterior. Keep spark plugs in good order and check prop for fishing line wrapped around in near the prop hub. Otherwise, get a yearly service and have them check the water pump and replace as needed, get it tuned etc and gearbox oil changed.

Dont have the manual in front of me...recollect that there's two types of warnings. The pulsating warning is oil (starts with 30 minutes of oil left) or the fuel filter (or sperator, something like that) may have water in it. Running outboard with cover off, is a little black box that would have a red light lit if that's the case. If oil full & no red light, may be oil injection system...would also check to make sure lines aren't pinched, etc. Mine has been specific to oil the two times its gone off.
The full non-pulsating is engine overheat. Not sure beyond that.
Not much, but hopefully gets you going.

I would check your fuel lines from the tank all the way to the fuel pump. It seems that you might have a pinched line somewhere. You can also bleed the fuel rail with the schrader valve on the end of the rail. If that wont fix it then you probably have a weak fuel pump.
