Opened the VST on the Merc 60HP - 06/19/21 08:39 PM
Have narrowed down my troubles to this area, and if not, knew I'd never be satisfied unless I looked. The first picture is what it looked like when it was first opened. The second was when it was clean. I was hesitant to even start, but I'd had it in the shop already, they busy, etc. In actuality, it's not that big of a deal if you've messed with carbs any. I pulled the pressure regulator and the screen under it was plugged. The bypass hose was hard and brittle and the regulator o ring was cracked. I ordered a new high pressure pump, some injection hose clamps, and a submersible hose for the the bypass hose. I found an o ring at a local shop for the regulator. The pump should be in today and the rest on Monday. If it doesn't fix it, it sure needed it.
