    Default 82 Johnson 60 hp 2 stroke - runs fine, dies when put in gear

    Compression tests are fine, starts - runs and idles fine, cleaned carburetors with gumout cleaner (but not taken completely apart).

    Put it in gear, immediately dies. What are the likely culprits?

    Your carb is non adjustable, you have to disassemble the carbs to check and clean all of the jets properly, there are 3 of them. You might check your idle speed to see if it is correct.

    What is your fine compression number?
