    Question Help With Outboard Motor

    Every time i go to start my 94 Force 90 hp outboard it WONT start. I pump the bulb till its firm. It cranks but never turns over. I know I am getting spark because when i spray some gas down the plug holes it starts up and then continues to run and then starts right up the rest of the day. (why i think its not initially getting gas)

    I need help so I dont have to spray gas in my plug holes every time i want to take my boat out. Please pass any info on. Thank You for your help.

    hey viper, where in wi are you located?

    if you dont spray it to get it started have you held the starter long enough to see if it floods? you may have spark but it may be weak..next time just give it a pump or two, just before the ball gets firm. we had a similar problem and it was a faulty primer.

    Check your fuel lines for pinholes including the ones connecting the carbs together. Check the gaskets at the base of the carbs and take the bowls off and look for crap in there like old gasket etc. My 85 force always started fine with the choke when cold.

    Thats the thing, ours used to as well. Then we had to replace one of the carbs. It worked great for a couple weeks and now this problem. I will check for a leak. Thanks
