    Default "I have a 40hp johnson model R

    "I have a 40hp johnson model RLSSM (year 2000). I cannot get it to idle..It is kinda hard to start, I have to choke it slightly even when it is hot...

    Carbs have been cleaned and I think fuel lines are ok..I runs great at medium to full throttle..at idle though maybe 5-10 seconds and the stalls..

    I would greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions...The mechanic I use is really good on older motors of any type and I trust he has done all he knows to do..He has had it twice and can't seem to solve the problem..

    Could the problem be electrical maybe?

    Help please...Thank you!"
