I have a 4 HP Evinrude outboard motor, Model E4BRHCTA - built

Customer Question

I have a 4 HP Evinrude outboard motor, Model E4BRHCTA - built in 1983, and I have installed a carburetor rebuild kit with a new float, gaskets, etc.
However, the motor starts but, stalls out in seconds. I believe that it is flooding out as the spark plugs are wet with gasoline.
Any suggestions?

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Have you run a compression test on the engine, if yes, what did you get for numbers? If no, that is where you need to start.
