Hello fellow iboat members! I'm desperately in need on some advice.
Ok so here's what's going on. I just recently purchased a 19ft Bayliner with a 87-89? 130hp Mercrusier 3.0 2.5 liter I/O. With the weather warming up here in alaska, decided to get her up and running for fishing season. Problem is it doesn't want to start up. I have gone through the troubleshooting steps in the adults only section and have replace with brand new battery, spark plugs/ wires, slave solenoid, starter, fuel pump, oil, oil filter, fuel/water separator filter, Fresh gas in tanks. It now cranks and attempts to start. After a few turns of the key I could get it to run roughly for about 5-10 seconds before it stalls out. Checked carb and getting 2 strong fuel squirts for every throttle pushed but refuses to start. I'm thinking I should probably take out the carbs for a good cleaning but wanted to get some opinions before hand. Any thoughts, tips, would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance
