Can anyone tell me the spark plug gap for 1997 6 hp mercury 2 stroke? This engine will not idle and is sluggish on acceleration. I went through the carb and everything seems ok. I am thinking it is electronics(triggers). Can anyone tell me how to test electronics? Also have 4hp four stroke 1999 that needs new water pump impeller. does anyone know how to drop foot because I removed 2 bolts from foot and shift linkeage but driveshaft still hung up . Does shaft seperate at powerhead like most engines? Any help thanks
