Hi.......jut acquired an older early 70's model twin cylinder 3 Hp Johnson outboard, and cannot get it to turn over......checked / cleaned plugs, fuel line and shut-off, etc....
I have a 2 HP Evinrude kicker for my sailboat which always runs great...this 3 Hp has me stumped! Is it ok to run some carb cleaner / dry gas through it?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks for any ideas....
