Remove spark plugs and check compressions are over 100psi then put plugs back in plug caps and hold them against the head and crank over and see if they spark ! if yes then remove carb airbox cover and open the throttle fully and sqwert some fuel in the carbs try to start then with 1/4 throttle and choke on ! if starts but then dies then you need to clean the carbs and fuel pump , check diaphrams not hard !

SOURCE: 1994 40 hp mercury force outboard with no spark

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.

SOURCE: Missing operators manual for Evinrude 2 hp outboard motor

Your best bet is ebay for a replacement user manual. Take a look around, you will come across one... For the meantime, gas oil ratio should be 50 parts gas to 1 part oil, i.e. 50:1. General care: Dont go full throttle for any length of time. Cruise of 3/4 throttle... Always flush engine after use in saltwater, including washing down exterior. Keep spark plugs in good order and check prop for fishing line wrapped around in near the prop hub. Otherwise, get a yearly service and have them check the water pump and replace as needed, get it tuned etc and gearbox oil changed.

Mercury 1989 60 HP Outboard Motor manual to find gas to oil ratio


50:1 But if your doing mostly low rpm cruising (trolling) then you could reduce that a bit to 75:1 to help reduce smoke. If you do mostly mid to higher rpm cruising, then 50:1 (1 pint to 6 gallons. )
Or 200mls in 20 liters if your Canadian.

Have 115 Hp mercury outboard motor missing at full throttle and on idle. At mid throttle it is running fine. Any Idea what the problem could be. Thanks, Milton


Have your spark plugs changed AND carbs cleaned and adjusted.
Usually that can also be caused by a seized advance system ( plate under the flywheel, commanded to turn with the throttle linkage... )
