    "Does anybody know what the spark plug gap is supposed to be for a 1982 Johnson 2 stroke motor? Also the engine is overheating after about 5 minutes of running, spits water but water is really hot. Blowing white smoke also. Just had new throttle cable put on and a new overheating horn. It ran great yesterday and today it overheated and wants to die out. Any ideas? Thanks"
