got a quick question and am hoping for a couple thoughts on the matter. i had my fishing boat out a week and a half ago sunday. the motor ran good as usually. tried to take it out yesterday evening and it started right off then quit after a few seconds. took the cowl off and tried starting it again. it would not turn over after that. after trying to turn it over for a couple seconds, gas would shoot out of the air inlet for the carb. does this usually mean the float is stuck open? ive never had this problem before. if this is the problem. is there an easy way to unstick it without tearing the whole carburetor apart? thanks sean edit * this is a 1970 evinrude 33 hp.
