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.

Check the fuel pump output. Some will work but not have enough output for the instances you describe. Find a place that can test the fuel pump pressure.

Did you try cleaning the carburetor before installing it? It may have factory oils and greases that are obstructing fuel flow.

If it runs fine at idle but bogs down when reving, then you are either not getting enough air or not getting enough fuel.

Have you notices any black smoke from the exhaust when you try to rev it? If so then you are running too rich and aren't getting enough air. You may want to check the path of air travel for other restrictions.

few reasons will try to narrow down first start it and put in neutral and deck disengaged release clutch if bogs then fuel problem the carb may need adjustment or repair or fuel filter needs replacement----if no bog step on clutch no put in gear release clutch if bogs check drive belt -upper belt on engine pulley and check for binding an idler pulley problem -debris -or rear unit binding -needs service-drive pulley damaged-rear locked--if not bogging in gear step on clutch engage deck release clutch if bogs need to check deck -belts-pulleys -mandrels -bearings and for bent or binding blades good luck

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

My mercury 35 hp outboard motor idle's fine but won't run


While at the river try to adjust the fuel air mixture. When you are on the water it puts the engine under a load and if that dont work then dont be afraid to bump up the idle stop screw slightly.
