    I've got a 70 hp Johnson. The sucker runs like a champ about 99% of the time. My gripe is that when I'm wet or it's raining outside, that fool thing will shock the living pee-woddle out of me when I touch the metal around the gear shifter or the key.

    Any suggestions?

    Jerrod some night when you aren't doing much put that sucker on the muffs and take the hood off and takw a squirt bottle and squirt som water from the top of the motor down around the plug wires and the other wires I almost bet you will find the problem.
    Oh I forgot to mention start it up first.
