Is there anyone who works on/repairs or stocks parts for older 2-Stroke OMC outboards in Anchorage? And don't say Anchorage Small Engine Repair.
I have a '69 4HP Evinrude Light Twin that has sat in a shed in FL for 14 years. Compression is low (40 psi) but it should still run. I just replaced basically everything (complete Ignition system-2 coils, condensers, points, new leads & plugs, new fuel pump, water pump, and a carb rebuild kit) and it ran for a total of five seconds and only after I sprayed WD40 into the cylinders.
Sparks at both cylinders but no fuel. (Dry spark plugs) There is fuel through the pump to the carb inlet via the squeeze ball on the tank. Can't even SMELL fuel.
These engines are super simple, and this should have been a fairly straight-forward task. I did everything, or at least think I did everything, according to the Seloc book and used all new Sierra brand parts.
