I have a 1961 5.5 HP Evinrude and when I bought it it EVERYONE said use 50 to 1 ratio. I had a problem with it cutting out after a long run when I slowed down so I posted the ratio question on this site and was told the APOS manual said use 24 to 1. I started using that ratio and have never had any problem since. It's a little smokey when you start it but it runs great. I think most people say 50 to 1 but they really don't know. Try a richer mix and see if that corects it.
