    Re: Motor will not start/run

    Made time to check the spark gap and it was all over the
    place. I think I need to re visit the corrosive wire(s) issue.
    One minute I had a 7/16 spark and then nothing.

    Re: Motor will not start/run

    110 psi all cylinders.
    History
    I remember when fitting the rings to the cylinders the gap
    was .025 on all of them which seemed incorrect since the
    manual showed much less (I don't remember what)...

    Re: Motor will not start/run

    I'll check all that.
    Voltage regulators looked burned up.
    Switch boxes wiring was green with corrosion all
    thru.
    Previous owner said idle stablizer component
    failed which caused the detonation.

  5. Re: Mariner 3cyl 50hp woes and do not know where to turn

    You must have a lot of $$$ to throw around.
    First thing I do is remove and CLEAN the carburetors
    before anything else. It's usually easy to do and
    cleaning is free.

  8. Re: 2004 Mercury 200 - Does paint off of these bolts indicate its been repaired?

    Just ask the seller.
    Those are head bolts so maybe someone had to replace the head gaskets.
    Who knows why. Ask if it's been in salt water. If so, run the other way.

    Re: New project

    Solder new wires and now everything is tight and solid. Also, points look
    like new and getting good spark.
    On a motor this old should I use 50:1 or 25:1?

    and hopefully it will last another 82 years.
