Howdy all, I just got a 1992 Tracker Pro 17 with a 60hp Johnson pro series motor. The oil res. was not connected so I have been running a 50:1 mixture out of the tank. I never got an owners manual so I don't know the correct starting procedure. There is no choke that I can see, just a primer at the key switch. This gives me problems when starting after I get to the Lake, or after I have fished for a while and want to move to another location. A few questions....Why do I keep flooding the engine when starting? What postion should the primer solinoid (little red lever on the motor) be in? Does anyone know what the correct starting procedure is? Any Ideas would be helpfull. Thanks, Sean
