    Default "My motor starts easily, idles

    "My motor starts easily, idles in gear and neutral ok.When you give it gas under load it does not pick up much, won't plane. Carbs kits redone a year ago and now stripped, cleaned.Find top two plugs oiling up, changed plugs, no change. Used it the week before and no problem, problem arose as soon as I put it in the water a week later. Fuel supply good"
