did you manage to sort the problem??
The problem is being sorted as we speak, I ended up dropping off at South Coast Outboards in Christchurch, really nice guy there who is a social member at the rowing club I am a member at, helped me out the first time I bought it and stupidly didnt realise that the fuel floods the outboard when you trim it up with the fuel still left on (moment of stupidity I know). Just waiting to here a price
. Although not really necessary he is fitting a kill switch I bought for just over a fiver, so was worth the money to try and keep my head if I end up in the river.
Bradosh, tried giving it a carb bath, a guy on Youtube decided he was going to make step by step videos on how to change the impellor, and the gear lever and even clean the carb on the identical model to mine, but even after doing all of that it still annoyingly wasn't working, but there we go, atleast I know it will be working and the kill switch will work properly and not with dodgy wiring from me
