  • 1997 40 Hp Mercury Outboard 4 Cyl 2Carbs Stalling Hard to start after Stopping

    Please.. This motor starts and runs perfect out of water but everytime I take it out I have the same problem after I stop to fish and try to restart it I have trouble. It hesitates to start I have to push throttle up high and choke the motor ,when it starts at first it kills a couple of times while trying to accelerate. If I push the throttle hard (accelerate fast ) it will run perfect. The motor runs fast and good at high rpm's but if slow down and decrease throttle to low rpms (like trolling it will sometimes kill. I have replaced two primer balls and both fuel tanks to no avail. Help ! Thanks so much.
