If the fuel was not treated with a fuel stabilizer than you probably have a varnish build up in the carburetor. This varnish will clog fuel needle valves and jets. You need to disassemble the carb to clean the jets and needle valves. Sometimes cleaner is not enough you need to us compressed air to blow out the jets. Good luck.

My problem ended up being the spring on the reed valve being weak.But at the same time and while I had already had my carb broke down I took a can of carb cleaner to it and cleaned it. In order to replace the spring on reed valve you will have to buy a new one, but don't worry I only payed about $6.00 for mine. You may also look into replacing your primer bulb if you haven't already because may allowing air to build up in your gas line while you are basically idiling.Once you get the carb straightened out you may have to reajust it again. If I might be able to help you again you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

get some starting fluid and spray a liberal amount into the air intake, then try to turn over. if it will not turn over with starting fluid you have a problem either with your ignition system, example: plugs, coils, wires, ect. If it does fire and then die out with a shot of starting fluid then you have a carb problem. If the boat has been sitting anything over a month thats where I'm betting the problem is. Post back after you find out if its a fuel, or fire issue and we'll start the repair process.

No spark can be attributed to two components; The stator or the trigger assembly. Even if you had a diagram (available online @ Mercury), you will still need a test harness,a DVA adapter and a meter to measure the resistance of the CDM's (capacitor discharge module) ,stator and trigger assembly. Best case fix would be the trigger, most expensive would be the stator. If you remove the flywheel, and inspect the stator, you can inspect the the coils that are coated with a white epoxy, and if one or more are bad, they sometimes leak a black resin, indicating the coil(s) have been shorted and no longer provide voltage for spark.
