Johnson 4hp - stops after few seconds
Hoping to tap into some of your wisdom and knowledge.
Johnson 4hp has a broken throttle cable, this has now been replaced and the timing plate loosened so it moves as it should.
Now starting it up it starts after a few pulls but stops after a few seconds. I did then notice that the vent on the fuel tank was still closed (oooops!). So going to try again tonight see if after itís cooled down it starts and keeps running with the vent open. That wouldnít have helped.
But if that doesnít do the trick, Iím thinking maybe the carb needs cleaning. Has anyone done this on a Johnson 4hp or similar from the mid 1990s? Itís. 1994 two stroke 4hp engine.
Any guidance most appreciated!!!
Ps I have a video but donít think I can add it in here?
