Thread: Hard to start

  1. #1

    Default Hard to start

    I have a 1988 25 hp Johnson (j25eccm) electric start console drive.
    When the engine is cold it is hard to start. I donít know why but the carburetor does not have a choke on it. When I turn the key to the run position and push it in thereís a click in the engine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Dan

    It does not have choke plates.----It has an electric primer valve that is proven to be much better that choke plates.----You have to push the key in and hold it in while cranking it over.
