2-Stroke Refresher

Post by SeaFaring »

Hi everyone, I’ve been away from the forums for a while (new job + new baby). I hope all are well.

I’m using my 2 weeks of paternity leave (during which my main responsibility seems to be to keep our 4 year old from driving my wife nuts) to FINALLY get my tinny going for the summer, and I cannot get my 3.5 Johnson started for the life of me.

It has fresh gas and will run on starting fluid, so It’s got air and spark. This tells me it’s probably a clogged jet, but I’m not sure how since I ran the carb dry before putting the boat up for the winter.

Could someone give me a suggestion or two on how to get this thing running?
