Have to let idle before turning off.... #13698295 09/12/20 01:41 PM

'87 Merc 35 on on pontoon boat...

I've found that unless let the engine idle for a few minutes before turning it off, it is very difficult to restart.

Example, running full throttle for 10 minutes to fishing spot, usually let it idle the whole time I'm dropping anchor/etc. Restarts with no issues.

However if I run for 10 minutes, turn it off, then need to turn it back on soon, it just cranks forever and never fires, almost like it's not getting fuel.

Is there any connection here??

Primer bulb would be my first area to start with.

Or flooding. I had a V6 Merc do the same thing. A carb rebuild fixed it.
