I recently acquired a 1968 Evinrude Skeeter 16. This is my first sled project. I got a few problems. It runs, idles great but has bad throttle response and top end. I have cleaned the tank, carburetor, added fresh gas at suggested 50:1 mix, and installed new Champion J6C plugs.
I believe it is running on both cylinders as both plugs come out dry after running. I have to have the main jet out as far as possible just to get enough rpm to drive.
2nd problem is the track. It is splitting at the seam. I really do not want to replace the track. I am hopping somebody has a repair method?
Any help is greatly appreciated
