    If I run it open throttle for a while and then slow down the motor dies and wont start up again for 20 or thirty minutes. It acts as if it runs out of gas but the bulb has full pressure.
    Any suggestions????

    Pose the question in Bubba's outboards. He can help! Or... sell it to me! :wink:
    I have a "Tohatsu lower unit woes" thread in that section.

    Check fuel filter
    Check fuel pump (if it has one)
    old gas maybe?
    Make sure vent is open to equalize tank pressure.
    Possible hole in reed in carb.
    Maybe float stuck.
