I have a 1985 40 hp Evenrude and the moter will bog to a kill at low to mid rpm's. It runs good at full throttle, and getting there by priming the ball and pumping the choke. It has always had this problem. When i clean out the carbs it gets a little better at mid rpm's, but still runs poor at an idle and constanly starting it. I'm about ready to rebuild the moter piece by piece. Any help would be great.
