    I have an old 76' model 75 hp. Johnson Stinger. Had some problems a while back and ended up having to kit the carbs and rebuild the fuel pump. Cranked it just a few minutes ago on ear muffs and noticed smoke that i thought was coming from the starter. I got to looking and there is a hole in the intake the size of a marble right behind the starter? I have no earthly idea how or when this happened. Is it junk now? Do i have to find an intake or can this thing be welded or patched up somehow?

    I think the old engine is toast.:confused2: Not sure what came loose, wrist pin, rod cap or bolt, something. I'll most likely sell it for parts and start over.
