Hello, I just picked up a 4 HP johnoson seahorse... got it cheap, guy said it didn't run. Spark plig wires were reversed, and carb was gunked up, but it's running now.
Only I don't see the 'tell tail' that I'm acustomed to seeing on engines. I ran it for a few minutes and the block seemed to get warm fairly quickly. I hear some engines don't have tell tails, should I be concerned?
Was going to check out the pump, but as is usually the case, the shift rod is being challenging, can anyone tell me how to disconnect/reconnect it?
