I have a 7.5 air cooled 2-stroke Gamefisher boat motor. It has a Tecumseh engine. It has been sitting for two years and i cranked it up the other day. every time i engage the prop, the engine sputters and dies. i have a feeling that it is a dirty carb, but i cant find a rebuild kit for it. After I ran some carb cleaner through it, it helped but it was nothing drastic. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks JamesO

Thanks very much for the websites. Unfortunately, either I wasn't looking in the right place or they didn't have anything. Good news though, I found a local parts store that has the parts that I need. I plan to get them tomorrow, as well as rebuild the carb. Thanks again.

Don't know where you are located, but it looks like you might need that boat between now and then end of the year!!

Stay safe and dry.
