Question about Boating
Sounds like the carb is sticking and not letting it stay functioning correctly. Usually, this means that it is time for a carb rebuild. After you get this problem fixed I would highly recommend putting a stabilizer in your fuel to keep it from gumming up your carb when it is sitting.

the proper mix is 50 to 1 or 16 oz to every 6 gallons,in my little boat I put 4 quarts in the 48 gal tank and its been running for 22 years,your running way to rich and your plug is probaly fouled,take it out clean it up/dump your fuel and mix it right,thats a great motor you got,I hunted with it for years,oh yeah when you get started run it till all the smoke is gone or you will have carb problems ,if you dont have them all ready,a little carb cleaner wont hurt but get it running first,or all that trash will foul you out,have a great trip bartriley1

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

hi obviously a fuel fault someware / when motors are winterised the fuel system is usualy emptied, this causes gaskets and diaphrams to dry out and split try it with the tank filler off /replace the diaphram in the carb and i am pretty shure that will solve the problem /nb / as this motor has stood for a time and does not do much work /outboards love work check the water pump impellor and put a spoonful of oil in a full tank of gas hope this helps merlin v12
