I have a 1981 Johnson 90 hp outboard. The bottom carburator is leaking fuel. The enjin looses power when I open the throttle. Can you help?


It sounds the float in the carb is not free to float up and close the needle valve. It also could be that the float has fuel inside it and does not float. You will need to take that carb apart to see which it is.

make sure your shut off valve is working right in fuel line, pull off the hose @ carb and see if you have fuel there, then pull float bowl off and see if gas is making it into there,move float up and down and see if fuel drips out of carb with float in down position, also check to see if you have a electric solenoid in float bowl, if so this has to open up with power on it. If it does'nt open you won't get any fuel in the bowl, my guess is either that or your needle is sticking closed....good luck

Saw wont idle ..runs fine at full throttle


If it runs good at full throtte its the carburtor it needs to be cleaned . Drop the float bowl clean the needle valve its the one that the floats make move up and down disconnect the fuel line and spray carb cleaner thruogh that and also clean your air filter . This should fix all and you kind of have to do this as regular maintaintes . Its always the carburators with the little 2 strokes and the air intake
