Went out to do some perching today. The engine wasn't running good and I came back in. It looks like condensation in the fuel has fouled the carb Has anyone had any work done at Klien's?

--My thoughts only --As a Automotive tech. by trade , Carb cleaner is very unfriendly to gaskets & O rings & if needle & seat assy has a rubber tip , rest assure it hasent helped that---Bite the Bullet & get it fixed Professionally, Many things can create a diagnois of a problem in the fuel system, but it may be elsewhere ---As Fram says , pay now or pay later --Many Tech. are named Bill ---Big Bill ---Small Bill---Mr Kline's name is George, at least call him --geo.Thanks Gentlemen,
Perfect...I have an Evinrude. I filled the bowl up with carb cleaner and let soak for a few hours late afternoon yesterday (no easy task). I'll put it back together and see what happens. If I'm still having problems I'll take it to Klien's. I'm glad to know their is a good mechanic so close. The last time it was in the shop was at Guy Bro.s which was quite a hike for me but they did good work.
---So many times problems posted have no outcome report ---George is a Icon when it comes to Johnson & Evenrude ---Hope you get lotsa enjoyment out of your boat , fishing for them Blackbacks --geoGeorge (didn't want me calling him Mr. Klein anymore) called me today and said she runs "wide-open" now. Problem was a clogged venturi. He replaced the plugs, greased everything and since it was in there had him replace the impeller.
I got it back less than one week after I brought it to him. Tomorrow would've been one week. He had to work on it outside since my jon has a counsel w/ignition, throttle etc. on it. Truthfully, I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't take that long with the weather we've been having.
Looks like I'm going out perching this weekend to make up for all HOing I do :clap:
George said bring it back if it doesn't perform. I doudt that after 40 (maybe more) some years of his experience I'll have to.
Thanks aafinest and capt.george!
