Johnson 50hp 1995 - RPM Drop

by Chris
(New Jersey )

The engine RPM slowly drops and eventually stalls when full throttle. It also has trouble at idle / low RPMs. The engine the takes a few times to start and I have to turn the key, prime and almost juice the gas one in neutral a bit to almost feed/warm up the engine prior to going in gear. Has anyone had this issue? I am no expert and the issue doesn’t happen to when reving in neutral

Possible fuel problem, check filters, check fuel line back to tank, tank vent if fitted, can be blockage or sucking air due to poor fuel line connection
