I have a 1971 Johnson 6hp. It won't run with no choke, choke is most of the way out. There was no power with no choke and it didn't run smooth either. It ran smoother with half choke. Help?

There is a small jet in the carb that you can get at through a plug in the front of the bowl. It's a small jet, I cleaned mine with the wire from inside a twisty tie, just peal the paper off. Hope this helps.
