We just bought a 1991 boat with a Johnson Outboard 50hp motor. The motor starts with starting fluid, but won't stay running. My husband changed the fuel filter and cleaned the spark plugs and made sure there is gas and oil in the tanks. The battery probably needs to be replaced, but has enough juice to turn the motor over. Could the problem just be the battery or is it probably something else.
