I have a 1995 6 hp yamaha 2 stroke outboard motor. the model

Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** I have a 1995 6 hp yamaha 2 stroke outboard motor. the model # ***** ***** A few weeks ago I cleaned the carb and took the motor and it worked fine at first for about an hour and then began to quit in shorter durations until it was about about every 5 min. After I got home, I then replaced the diaphragm and gasket on the carb side of the fuel pump and now I can't get it to start. I've got good spark to the plugs and I removed the carb and fuel pump again to see what was going on. Everything looked clean and good. I thought maybe I wasn't getting any fuel, but the carb bowl was full of gas. I'm open for suggestions for what to do next. thx
