I recently broke down the 3 carbs and cleaned the jets and put them back together (I believe) like I took them apart. When I installed them back on the boat and hooked up the linkage like it came off, now it starts right up but will not idle at idle speed. It accelerates without giving it more throttle. Any suggestions?

You might get some help at Bass Boat Central on the Mercury forum.

I have it posted on BBC and received 2 replies. I've already tried with no success.

I would call or take the boat to Mark Gunter at Gunter Marine in Weatherford. He’s been great with me and he is a master Mercury mechanic.

I'm 50 miles north of Lubbock. Not many boat mechanics in the area.

Call Max Spiker, Anglers Marine in Amarillo. Got two long time buddies in AMA. They speak very highly of him. Mercury guy.
