Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
How old is the gas in the boat? On your shifter, does it allow for you to rev the engine up in neutral a bit?
Did you pump the bulb up before starting it?
The old gas by itself would definitely do it. Do you have another tank, like a portable tank, you can run the engine off of?
How much gas do you have in the boats tank right now?
You really need to run the engine off of another fuel supply, not on the stuff in the tank. If there is water in the tank adding gas to it isn't going to fix anything. All that means is instead of pumping out 1/8th of a tank you would have to pump out whatever you put in. See if you can get another tank and run the engine off of that.
Yes, you can do it that way. That will work as well. Let me know what happens after you try the fresh gas. Keep in mind it mike take a few attemmpts to get it going if there is still old gas in the carbs.
Just reply right back here and we can continue.
Ok just locate the black box that connects to the ignition coils. # ***** in the link is the power pack. Then locate the black wire with the yellow stripe disconnect it. Now start the engine. Does it continue to run? The pack will be on the top rear of the engine. http://www.boats.net/parts/search/BRP/JOHNSON/1993/J115TLETS/IGNITION%20SYSTEM/parts.html
