I am in need of some work to be done on my usually reliable motor. It started up fine in the AM last Friday at Lake Ray Roberts Jordon Park and we ran to Cate's Point but couldn't get it started and running again and had to be towed back to Jordon Park. Thanks much to the good Samaritan who gave us the tow. He told us that when it turned over, and tried to fire, that black smoke came out of it. It fired a couple of times but as soon as you got off the hot foot it would stall out and not start again. Thought it might be flooded but even resting for 15 min didn't help. I even changed batteries to try and get it started but even that didn't help. When I got it home I took the cover off again, drained the gas/water/debris filter then pumped the bulb to refill it, but then noticed fuel running down behind what I assume is the air filter. Don't know anything about motors and the Mercury Book I have that came with the motor doesn't help me much. I live in Pilot Point and have used Bear Marine in the past, but recently I had to re-do some work they had supposedly done for me, so I am not too sure I want to go back there again, although, other than this last time of using them their work has been super. I would like a recommendation for a different Mercury motor repair place as close to Pilot Point as possible. Thanks.
