Bassman, what I found with mine was the motor had to be level to start good. If it was trimmed up even just a little it was hard to start. I was told it had something to do with the float system but don't know that for sure. I know that once I found this out my Merc would fire right up every time usually without even choking it. Hope this helps.
I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don’t have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don’t have a curfew I have a driver’s license and my own car. The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant. And I have a bass boat.
Life is great!
