If you have a primer bulb and the motor "recovers" after a near stall with a pump of the bulb, then you have to replace your fuel pump. Johnsons do have this problem often. Otherwise it could be the high speed jets although it sounds like you checked the carb good. Also if you have a primer bulb, Replace everything from the tank to the engine. Costs about $14 at Wal Mart, $55 at a boat place.

The magneto or pickup coil could have been affected by the spray. When the motor turns the pickup coil reads the flywheel and produces the electricity for the coil. You may have rust on that part and the magnet in the pickup could be covered with oily rust. Test electric components and sand rust off.

Ok, if you have fuel coming out of the throat of the carb then you need to readjust the float level. On that engine the best way to set the float level is to remove the carb. Remove the fuel bowl. Turn the carb upside down so the float is on top of the carb. You want to bend the tang (the piece that seats the inlet needle) so that if you are looking at the float it sits perfectly level. Once you reinstall the bowl and carb be sure to adjust your idle mixture and try it again. If it still spews out of the carb throat then take it back apart and do it again. If the inlet needle point is worn at all then you need to replace it so that it seats good. But if you set the float it is level when the carb is upside down you should not have a problem. You can put your faith in the fact that every spring I rebuild about 5 outboard carbs a day from people letting fuel sit during the winter.
