Lol...I have a 1965 650 and have done the carbs on it. You need to loosen the bracket in the front and get it out of the way the best you can. Use a 90 degree open end 7/16" wrench. On mine I think that I had to take the starter out also. Then once I could loosen the nuts on the carbs I had to twist, turn, and cuss alot until they came out. it is not a difficult job...just very frusterating.

I have a 1964 mercury merc 850 85hp boat motor.

I have the same motor, and the original manual.

The mixture is 50:1. Everything else will destroy your motor. Mercury has a toll free number, call there in case you still have doubts.

Try fresh fuel...if carberated then clean out carbs. Sounds like clogged jets from varnished carb bowl and old fuel.
