    I have a old Christler 45 hp motor and it is leaking oil and gas out of the bottom. What should I do? Can anyone help.

    Billy, that's a kind've vague statement, but I'll try.

    First thing to do is take off the cover, prime the bulb and try to spot the leak.

    Give a little more on the leak situation if you can.

    ive primed it and it doesnt leak until i try to start it then it leaks fuel out of the carb and oil out of the bottom where the water goes in at. I dont know much about boat motors.

    Sounds like you've got two different problems. The float sounds like it has a hole in it, keeping the needle valve open. As far as the other problem....

    Billy, look at the carb threads, you'll find pictures there.

    All two stroke carbs are very similar in structure and operation.

    I don't have a manual on Chryslers, so I can't give any specific information. If I had it, I would use what I know to do the job. You'll have to apply what you see in the photo's I posted to your engine.

    Pay close attention to what your doing and you'll make it. It's not really a hard job.

    I took the carbs off and when i did that i saw that the choke was stuck closed. That was my problem all along, but while i had the carbs off i clean them and put new gaskits on just in case.
    Thank you all for your information.

    Are you running the motor while it is on a flush attachment? If so, Chryslers didn't take water in very well that way. In fact I believe they came out with their own flush type attachment that had a certain shape to it in order to help with this.

    Glad you found your carb problem!

    no I run it in a trash can full of water to simulate water fully surrounding it, and after it warmed up (5 min) it was pumping water really good.
