Okay well there might be part of the problem, it's a 15 gallon tank but it measures bigger?

I premixed for 18 gallons of fuel, little too rich IMO

Thats not the problem.
That won't hurt a thing.

It was pretty gunky fuel, I hope the previous owner didn't also premix the fuel

It definetly did not smell good

Won't hurt either way! Fresh ethanol free fuel. Only thing I'm worried about now is the seal on the fuel level measure. Screws were spinning a little into the tank, so I also put gasket maker on it

I would do a compression check before I done anything else.

Ayyee!

She ran great today! First time I've ever driven it!

I ran the lower unit in a bin at the house and opened the carb low pressure needles about 1/4 turn each as well as bumping up with low idle adjustment in the top of the motor.

Started right up and idled great, could only hit 4900rpms for some reason but topped out at 35mph

Also found a nice hole in the hull
Emerald Ghost and Stoker1 like this.
