I read what you wrote. I don't know what you know about outboards, or what you may or may not have tried on your own yet, what kinds of questions did you have for me?

Hi Jeff, good morning and sorry for the delay. We all do this on the side. When you replied back last night I was already off to bed.

What is the story on this engine, have you ever personally seen it run correctly or was it this way when you bought it? How old is the fuel in the tank?
