"I have a 1983 2hp eska outboard that I bought on craigslist for my canoe. The first time I used it, it ran great for about 30 minutes then I shut it off at a small island and had to row back as it would not start. Since then I tried it several times and it has not run more than 5 minutes before it floods. I bought a carb kit and it still wont run more than 5 minutes without flooding. I was told that it needed a neoprene tipped needle but the carb kit comes with a metal needle and the needle that was in there before the carb kit was also metal. I noticed the fuel comes out very fast when the gas valve is all the way on. Could this be the problem? I do not have an owners manual and its the first outboard I have ever owned. Please help!!"
