Floyd perhaps it's got a problem like a carb float hanging up or adjusted too high?????

A friend in Alaska has 15 or so 15hp Johnson OBs for his fishing lodge rental fleet. They are really Suzuki engines and give great service even though they are operated by a different person every day that could care less about how long they last.

However I started liking Suzuki's as a motorcyclist.

I'm stunned. People have outboard engines on their dinghys with a large fraction of my 14-ton trawler's 80 horsepower???!!

My current dinghy donk is a Tohatsu 5hp with integral fuel tank, a tough simple no nonsense OB.
Sweetest OB ever owned was a Suzuki 7.5 twin cylinder as a sailboat auxiliary. Smooth as.

I had a suzuki 150. Bought it new, was my first motor vehicle, i think maybe 62-64. Cost less than 500 bucks

No its a good engine just lacks the sophisticated computer controled high presure fuel injection systems all my other late model engines have.
I have another merc, a 4hp 4stroke that is bullet proof vintage 1999. That is an incredible little tyke
