  • Almost new 8 hp Suzuki outboard won’t start.

    Have used it about 4 hours altogether. Up to now, full choke, start, put half choke away, warm and put all choke away. Has run very well. Today it will not start, all levels of choke, tried removing fuel line and clearing. After half an hour I gave up. I got the odd fire from it but that was it.
    The current on the river here is strong, it has to work! Why so difficult? If it’s not reliable it is of no use.

    Started first pull today, thinking it must be electrical, possibly the switch. I had removed and replaced the switch several times when it would not start. This is not inspiring when on the water.
