my 9622a is also a bit hard to start but I just give it a shot of carb cleaner, it starts and purrs and runs all day not bad for a $50 seized boat anchor

sorry for posting my favorite picture !

Exhaust leaks would have nothing to do with hard starting (there is no exhaust till it is running). I wouldn't advise going to all that work to look at the shift rod boot unless you have good reason to suspect it. The indication for that would be smothering with the hood on but running OK with it off---on a boat, on the lake. Shucking that thing out of the shell is a major job.

I'd highly suspect the coils, if you haven't looked at them yet. They are well known to crack with age. Not limited to the 9.5hp, but all OMCs of the era.

As mentioned, they can get a bit crusty under the flywheel and require a good cleaning.

Still searching for a rudder and hardware to fit a KOBAN. ☺

Wowser! Well mine doesn’t look as bad as the first picture - but it doesn’t look as good as the 2nd picture.

Today I ran another test after tweaking the low speed jet - I reseated it and backed out a single turn and when I tried starting it (cover off) it cranked on the first pull. I plan to take it for a run at the lake tomorrow to see what happens. Fingers crossed.

Probably with one of these OMC push type grease guns which screwed onto the grease tube. I'm sure I've seen similar ones somewhere with the small tip on them.
