View Full Version : 1981 Mercury 90hp Stalls Coming out of the Hole

" Hello, from the Tennessee River Valley -
Anyone have possible solutions for my 1981 Merc 90-hp stalling, when trying to pull a skier out of the hole? The engine runs great without the load of a skier, with only VERY slight hesitation if the throttle is advanced quickly. With a skier, the engine dies when the throttle is shoved forward, asking for power to pull the skier up. I have a new set of plugs to install - am I on the right track? Any help will be appreciated. - Ed
P.S. I am blind, and my wife is a fine ski puller, but a lousy mechanic. "
