    Do I have a cylinder/compression issue on my 1980 Johnson 9.9?

    Honestly JoLy, the Johnson 9.9 is super reliable. Once you get it running, it should provide you with years of service. Our 8hp powered a 15' with 3 of us around the bay. Does good on our little boat too.
  73. FishinMcNuggets

    Do I have a cylinder/compression issue on my 1980 Johnson 9.9?

    If you can start it and keep it running (30 seconds or less) by pointing an unlit propane torch at the carb, it's a fuel issue. Poke fishing line in all the fuel passages to make sure they are not obstructed. Get a screen based fuel filter at O'Reilly AP or a mower shop.
