Thanks for the reply Hobnob, it was sparking fine the fuel seemed to be going in and then it started coming out of the air intake hole. I suspect the float needle valve was jammed etc.
There was just no fuel getting through to the cylinders.
Question; does yours have an air filter on the front of the carb?
Some of these old Evinrudes had a thick fibre washer in the carb round the main jet. It doesn't like new fuel at all and disintegrates, blocking everything up. If it's there, it IS possible to very carefully replace it with a carefully cut bit of motorcycle fuel line.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
