Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? I read what you wrote. Is this a manual start engine with a traditional choke? Or is this an electric start version?
Hi Kurt. Are you near the outboard now for a quick test?
Click this link for a diagram - http://www.boats.net/parts/search/Honda/Outboard%20Engine/2003/BF20D3%20LHTA/CARBURETOR%20(AUTO)/parts.html
In the diagram locate #13. pull the engine cover off, go run the engine for 7 or 8 minutes, and then touch the top of that #13. Let me know if that part is room temperature, or if it is hot to the touch.
