Hi Bob, my name is Jason.

When it does does it start right back up? Have you looked down the throat of the carb as it is actually dying to see if it is flooding out?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It will not start backup. I will be useing it on the 30th and will look to see if it is flooding out. I have another boat that did the same thing years ago and all I did was lean the carb alittle and no more problem since so I thought I would try that on this one.
