I have a 1999 mercury mariner 5hp 4st motor, there's gas coming out of 2 holes in the top of the carburetor


Sounds like pressure builds up. I would say to rebuild the carb. Very easy job to do.

1982 Yamaha Seca Turbo (XJ650LJ) Had the carbs


Mine was stored for 20 years, I ended up replacing the seat and needles, cleaning them thoroughly and when I tried starting it, nothing!! No gas was going to the carbs, it turned out to be my gas pump, it was seized by the old gas remains 'varnish' so I had to clean it numerous times, soaked it in gas cleaner (short period at a time 15 minutes or so, being a very powerful cleaner, you cannot leave it for long without causing greater problems, thus I was able to get the pump going by boosting it with my car batterie, having more cranking amps directly to the pump, the pump was able to release itself from the old crusty varnish.

How to clean boat carburetor. 1984 35 hp mercury outboard sprays gas out of small hole towards top side of carburetor when starting. Motor will start on occassion for 5-10 seconds, but then gas will spray...


Carburetors are tricky, They have to be completely dismantled, soaked in carb cleaner, make sure all the gunk is off, every jet clean and clear, If you can't get a wire through it, you won't get gas through it, make sure you can blow through it, Get some guitar strings, .009 is about the smallest guitar string you will find, you can buy them separately at the music store if you don't have one. Change the filter in the line, when the carbs go back on, the adj all have to be the same, not one wide open and 2 idleing, Float level is also important, they don't sell complete kits anymore, you have to buy the parts individually, gaskets , etc, good luck.
