Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
I bought 1985 40 hp Johnson outboard, wouldnt open up and plane out, it would bogg down at a certain point and would run fine at lower speed. I changed the plugs and it ran fine for 6 outings last year. worked from launch ramp to dock this spring and started acting up again. Changed plugs and still the same.use to be oil injected but was disconnected before I bought. Mix oil in gas. Tried running some seafoam in gas for about 3 gallons.
Sounds like your mix is off and it's fowling the plugs. probably too rich. make sure the level in your carb bowls isn't too high. Really sounds like you should clean and bench set your carbs. Especially if a plug change helps but doesn't last, then it's got to be your fuel mix, or maybe timing.
