So I got a question about two different motors.
1. I have an old 70s model 25hp evinrude that has been great to me but the last trip I noticed it was sneezing hard and it got to the point where it was at full throttle and it was barely idling. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a carb cleaning but I just wanted to make sure before I open it up and start working.
2. I have a 98 Johnson 115hp an the last trip I had it out, It would idle fine and then when I would open it to full throttle it would just bogg down and kill and then it would take a little while to get it started again and then it would do the same thing. I know I need to change the fuel filter because it seemed loose and degrading but could this be a fuel problem that the filter could be causing? Also when I got it back to the house I noticed a brown fluid coming from the lower unit where it meets the shaft. I think this couple be a bad seal.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.
