    Default 1987 mariner 115 hp 6cyl carb problems

    Hi, I have a mariner 115 inline 6 cyl that is not running well but does run. my mechanic said it sounds like a fuel issue and to rebuild/clean the carbs.

    I ordered the carb gaskit kits and 2 new needle and seat sets

    While rebuilding the carbs I noticed the middle carbs float is missing the spring on the top of it. other than that the carb looks pretty clean, could this missing spring cause the running problems?

    The needles seem to seal well in the seat but they do seem to stick a little, Is this normal?

    also, on the bottom carb the hose that's on top was broken.

    any help would be apreciated
