I just bought this outboard and am running her on a bracket in a bucket of water. When she is out of gear, she starts up ok, but she shuts down when I decrease the throttle.

Where she cuts off


All and any feedback is appreciated.

Ok, 1 more question. This is what the cooler water looked like after I ran her. I think it's because my choke broke and the engine keeps flooding while running. I am not familiar with older model outboards so this is a learning procee for me.

That's what a 2 stroke leaves when run in a bucket.
Same results of a carbed 2 stroke whether 2 hp or 200 hp.

You've got about the easiest outboard to work on right there.
Get a carb kit and rebuild that carb. It's fun and it'll make a big difference.
