  2. Re: Engine issue HELP please. 45hp mercury classic 50

    Try adding a 1/2 turn OUT on the idle mixture screws.

    We see this all the time: the idle settings tend to lean out over time and, since these carbs lack an accelerator pump, they bog out when...

    Re: merc xr6 ignition

    Pull the plugs, ground the plug wires, and crank it over. Measure the DVA amps (DC) on the red and blue wires coming from the stator, then report back. (You do not have to remove the red and blue...

    Looking for a wiring diagram

    2002 Merc single cylinder 5 hp. (American made--not that Belgium thing).

    Anyone know where I can locate a wiring diagram for this? It's a friend's motor and I don't want to buy a manual for it.

  17. Re: Merc 110 &.5 HP two cylinder vs 1 cylinder

    Yeah. We always went the other way, slapping 7.5 hp decals on a 10 (or higher) motor.

  18. Re: 1985 50hp wma3 carb main jet change... 057..to .098 economizer ???

    That supposedly monitors the amount of air going into the fuel bowl. I've left them out and saw no difference in performance.
