I am still working on this same boat motor. I have it

Customer Question
I am still working on...
I am still working on this same boat motor. I have it running and accelerating but it is blowing gas and smoke out the front of the lower carb. I am afraid to take it out in the water with this going on. Why is it doing this again?
