You need to clean the carbs. your high speed jet in each carb is most likely fully or partially clogged, this is why it will idle, but when put under a load it stalls. The engine is fuel starved. I am 99.9 percent sure a good carb cleaning will fix your problems.

Hi, replace the sparkplugs and the carby(s) will probably need stripping down and cleaning as stale fuel leaves a residue in the bowl and jets. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Stalls in inital take off


Hi. Replace the fuel line inside the motor, the fuel line to the tank and then get a bottle of a fuel additive called seafoam to clean out the engine. Also check the plugs and replace them if necessary.. This routine usually works. J.

2005 Mercury 50hp 2-stroke outboard motor very sluggish when accelerating, stalled twice when trying to exceed 50% throttle capacity. Last time I used my boat was about two months ago, so I don't think bad...


The carberator is gravity fed and there is propbably gunk in it, when you give it more throttle, it needs more gas but can't get it. Then a build up of gas in the float bowl occurs and nothing works right. It has happened to me and its aggravating, do a complete rebuild on the carb or just replace it and you will be happier quicker.

Hope this helps, Coachtheune

Check your fuel pump presure. Pump is in the tank. Also try and loosen the fuel cap, the tank vent may be stopped up.
