Question and Answers

Q:

ted williams 7.5hp 217-58587-0 217585870 Craftsman Sears 7.5 h.p. outboard motor

A:

You have a very unusual symtom. If it will start start in gear it should start in nuetral. Also, running the engine out of water will damage the water pump impeller.

I suspect since it will start and then die, it could be a electrical issue, carburetor issue or mechanical. We do not have a service manual on this older Ted Williams boat motor. I suggest taking the boat motor to a boat motor mechanic with the experience and knowledge to properly diagnose and repair your boat engine. You also may find some answers and help here on the internet.
