If there is fire to coils, but not plugs, check each plug for damage or wear and replace anyway as a matter of caution. Also check each plug wire coming from the coils to the spark plug itself. These may be damaged or the boot or boot wire connection may need replacing, or the whole plug wire may need to be replaced. Check also you have a good, clean ground wire coming from the electrical harness/connections. Obviously, you need spark at the plugs for the motor to run or turn over.

Have 2155 cub cadet when it gets hot spudders then dies wouldn't start until cools acts like it not getting gas what could be the problemn?


To be quite honest it sounds more like a fire issue than fuel. More times than not when a coil starts going bad the hotter it gets the weaker it gets and sometimes stops firing at all until cooling down, occasionally a plug will do this aswell, but I think your coil is going out.

My 1970 65 horse Johnson out bored having problems with it running in water but runs good with water hose what could it be


quite possible that your motor needs a water pump. hose flushers force water thru at full pressure where as the pump pushes water only what the pump forces thru

1974 Johnson 70 hp outboard, quits on acceleration.


It sounds like your motor is starving for fuel. At an idle, you have adequate flow to keep the engine running. When you call for more fuel...you sputter and quit. Could be a clogged filter or trash in the line or in a jet. Yes you will have some air in the bulb, but not a great deal. You could be sucking air at a hose connection (loosing some prime)...try this, start the engine and slowly accererate, have someone pump the bulb as you accelerate, see if the engine works properly while doing this test.

70 hp Johnson hard to start.


could be the choke isn't closed all the way for the first start. Then when warm the motor doesn't need to be choked.
