I picked up a little 3 hp Sea King that looks to be in pretty good shape. I now have it running and it pumps water but haven’t replaced the waterpump yet but will do so as soon as I can find one. It looks to me that the carb on it is meant to just prime and not have a choke but somewhere along the line someone has added a choke as it looks home made and there is just a wire threw the side of the cover to open and close it. My question is did it have a choke from the factory? Seems to start fine with just the prime and would like to remove it if it wasn’t meant to be there. The one on it I am sure is homemade maybe to replace a factory one as it looks crude. Is there anyplace to find a parts list-I am going to need a coil to because this one the covering on it is falling apart and I would like to replace it before I run it anyplace other than a barrel. Thanks, Jim
Parts Catalog here (same motor as a Viking)
One more thing, is it ok to run on a 16:1 mix?
