    reeds any good ?? maybe they don’t close pushing whatever fumes if any were sucked in ….right back out the carb face ??

    gas will explode in a stack of coke cans or tube to launch tennis balls or potatoes how come this 2hp won’t ignite a teaspoon poured in the cyl. ????

    p.s. not motor related I know…..but I have lost a few tennis balls with a shot of lighter fluid 🙂 🙂

    Not claiming to be a pyrotechnician, but gas doesn’t burn. Gas VAPOR burns when mixed with the proper ratio of fuel/air mixture. Too much gas is “flooded”. Or something like that. Something I learned in school but forgot.

    But I haven’t forgotten when I emptied a 12 GA shotgun shell into a glass aspirin bottle and tossed it into a campfire. Don’t try that at home.

    My dad was a fireman his biggest nightmares were about me with my ” experiments” 🙂 🙂 🙂 he was always worried about coming over to our house with a fire truck and a dozen of his buddies to extinguish my “experiments” …

    the jokes would have haunted him all is career …but I never did burn the house down and he ended up working himself up into the fire hall director’s job .

    He always said a cup of gaz is worth 10 sticks 🙂 so I just fooled around with homemade black powder .

    Ah, the infamous OMC 2 hp. There really couldn’t be a more simple outboard motor; and yet, it often holds so many mysteries….I remember the time one kicked my butt, with a porous carb casting….(I am NOT saying this is the OP’s problem. If his compression gauge is accurate, COMPRESSION is the problem.)

    Long live American manufacturing!

    “Gas doesn’t Burn”……. after thinking about Frank’s quote, I have noted that when
    it’s 30 below out and you use a little gas to get a fire started, the gas is a LOT
    less volatile than on a summer day!

    Prepare to be boarded!
