Merc wouldn't start at 20 degrees

5 posts in this topic

Our 1995, 90 horse Mercury outboard would not start this morning at 20 degrees. We pushed the ignition key in as it turned over, would not fire, always has at 30 degrees. We removed the cowl and the cover in front of the carburator's and pushed a towel in each port, cranked it over and it started. Question, is there a remedy?

Hey Phil
Being your motor won’t start very good? frown.gif You can come and help me build icesaws??? It is always warm in my shop. My Yamaha always started with a little extra priming. The main thing tho are you catching anything? The big ones should be biting soon? My best luck was when everybody else was deer hunting! smile.gif To bad I have that four-letter word in my vocabulary that won’t let me go late fall fishing. mad.gif WORK!

I just brought my merc in because it was always so cold blooded in the winter I wasnt there to see what they did but I think they replaced the carbs and something else. Im a big help arnt I . LOL


But when we had the problem after not starting within minutes my motor would flood itself out so you would just unplug the gas line and crank it over a few times and off you go.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
