x2 Brett, I had a 3.5 suzuki outboard, would run great at idle till it ran out of gas, if you ran it faster it would die, cleaned carb, took it out again,same result,motor would start back up after about 4-5 min. then die again, took carb apart again,tried again, this time though when I was opening vent in cap the piece on top that you twist on top of the cap twisted off, it looked like the plastic had degraded, tried loosening entire cap and motor ran great. so I had to buy a new cap. Didn't have any problem after that. So lesson learned, you need gas, spark and air, without any one of them motor will not run or in my case run very long. Ed
