Mercury 1985 75HP
I had it running this summer on the water. It ran great.
It would shutdown in idle tho so I attempted to fix it. The motor would only run when I had it going forward out of idle.
I cleaned the carbs and set the idle speed.
After doing this, it still would not run in idle. But would run fine when I accelerated.
I tried playing with the idle speed a few more times.
After this my motor began to have a harder and harder time to turn over each time.
Until it eventually it would not turn on at all.
My trim would still be able to move up and down
I had someone come check it out.
- compression was good
2 of the spark plugs didnt seem to have spark the other 2 did
we found 2 wires that were in bad shape that ran from the stator(sp?) to the (fly wheel area)
I replaced the wires in that bad area
Now my motor does not have any power going to it at all
The battery is okay
Looking for some help...I live in ontario
