I have a 25hp Tohatsu and recently it started acting up. I pulled the carb and clean it out good with carb cleaner and washed off with water and bl owed out. With the engine in neutral it will rev up fine, but when in gear it will only idle, maybe just a little above idle, before it chokes down and dies. Saturday at the lake I tried choking it a little while under way in gear, and it picked up a little and then died again. I have removed the fuel line from the carb and put it in a clear plastic bottle then gave the bulb a couple squeezes and lots of fuel came out of hose into bottle. I was just wondering if maybe the fuel pump quit working. Hopefully someone here can help me figure out the problem..
