Hi Mike, good morning my name is***** you have a model number handy on the outboard?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
05062475 serial class 2b30
Expert:  Jason replied 2 months ago.

Unfortuantely those are not it. The model number would start with J90. Can you double check that for me. If you can not find it, is this just your basic 2 stroke carb model?

Okay got it. Is the engine actually stalling out, or is it just cutting out but more or less maintaining that 2000 rpms?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Cuts out more or less kepping rpms

Does the engine have a working alarm system on it? Have you checked compression, spark output, and fuel pressure on the engine? How old is the fuel itself? Is there any history to this outboard, have you ever personally seen it run correctly?
