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.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
