Mate.Get the fuel pump checked.Diaphram might be in the wrong way.Fuel lines?if you prime the bulb,does it pump up?Was the electric choke hooked back up and is it working properly?Check the correct part was put in.Does it run or start if you squeeze the primer bulb.It may be in the wrong way if it was changed.Start from the tank and work slowly forward towards the motor.Hope this helps to get you going

40 Hp Johnson outboard motors stalls out after a few minutes running then takes forever to start again


May likely be one of two problems:

1. Fuel flow: Make sure fuel tank vent is open and not blocked while engine running. Check primer bulb is working and no air leaks along hose anywhere. Check function of fuel pump and ensure fuel is getting to the cylinders.

2. Overheating: Check engine isn't overheating and that water pump is operating properly while engine is running.

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.

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.

1974 johnson outboard motor 25hp stalls when hiting high end


Not familiar with that specific motor but had similar vintage smaller HP Johnsons. From my experience it sounds like it could be that the high speed carb adjustment is too lean. What I would try is running the backing off the high speed screw 1/4 turn to 3/4 turn, then test. If works better, screw back in in 1/8 turn increments until the problem recurs, then back out 1/4 turn and leave it there.

Engine not running


Let it dry out a day or so, perhaps in the sun or a warm place. Try again. If it still won't start, try to find a fuel line or fuel jet and inject some compressed air in to blow it out a bit. Good Luck!
