Johnson 6 dying in gear

I use a Johnson 6 on my boat. It will only idle well in neutral with the choke pulled out fully. When I put it in gear and give it some gas it dies.

Re: Johnson 6 dying in gear

its starving for gas. Make sure there is some and it's clean and fairly new. Take the carb off and clean it, incl the jets..

Take the knob off of the lean / rich screw. Turn the screw all the way to the right, and then back off 1 1/2 turns. Put knob back on and make minor adjustments from this point.
