    30hp HOnad outboard issues

    Anyone ever work on one of these? My brother flipped the boat some years ago and the engine has never run right since. If you pull the choke and set the throttle to choke it will start (revs high). But if you go to throttle down or up it will start to sputter and die. Also if you attempt to push in the choke it dies.

    I have no clue when it comes to carb engines and the manual is just about useless. Just looking for some direction.

    lol he had way too many ppl in it and hit a wave the wrong way. They had to tow it upside down to a beach and right it. Thank god it was only a 16' carolina skiff.

    But yea thats what i figured I just have no idea how to rebuild them ive never done it before. My dad claims he rebuilt them before, I think he screwed something up. IMO they are getting to much fuel, because once you close the choke butterflies the engine dies. (cutting off the extra air intake)
