Check choke linkage OMC engines use a fair bit of plastic in and around the carby.
Flooding, Remove your carby and clean it out , you could replace the needle and seat , but they are not hard to remove so I would just clean it then replace it after if you are still having the same problem.

Hard starting on Yamaha 130 2 stroke. Always starts easily with ether. Choke works well.


This can have some reasons:
1 clogged carburettors. Too less fuel means a hard start.
2 Worn spark plugs
3 Loss of compression... On a 2-stroke, measuring compression is not an exact science. Have throttle wide open. No spark plugs, check compression on all cylinders. They should be all within 1bar from eachother...

I have a 2012 mercury 6hp four stroke that will not idle without the choke on


Hi, Lee and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting ***** set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture ***** set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

I was using my o17 saw today it was runing Just fine I shut it off when I went to start it again it fired on choke seting after that I could not get it to do anything what is wrong with it


All 2-strokes love to run rich when cold thus full choke till it kicks, half choke to start and leave on for 5 seconds high rev's to warm & lubricate, then no choke to run. Restart when hot is 1 pull full choke (you are now flooded) & then no choke til it starts. Try it. Works every time on all of my 2-stroke engines.

How do i replace a shift lever on a mercury 6 hp 4 stroke outboard 2006


Hello, is it the external shift handle you want to replace?

Then you'll have to remove the engine block from the driveshaft housing.
To do so: Drain the engine oil.
Disconnect the throttle cable from the carburettor.
Disconnect the start-in-gear cable from the recoil starter housing.
Disconnect the fuel lead at the fuel connector
Disconnect the choke puller at the carburettor.
Disconnect the white and black wire from the stop button at the engine-block and engine wires.
Remove 6 bolts holding the engine-block to the driveshaft housing.
Lift the engineblock.
The shift lever is fixed with a M6 bolt in the front-top of the driveshaft housing. You'll need a new gasket, Part Num 803508-9

Good luck!

Floods out everytime you try to start no matter what you do .if i dont pump the bulb or choke it . gas comes out the exhaust


Clean the air filter. Clean the spark arrester (muffler - if it cannot exhale it cannot inhale). You can prime until your thumb bleeds - that is NOT the problem. To much choke almost always is. It is severely flooded Open and follow this BE CAREFUL - Extreme fire hazard.

Extreme Flooding by Dolfoff
Please follow this link, http://www.fixya.com/support/t3226410-no_spark_new_plug_but_continues_flood cursor down to “Best Solution”, while there click the “Was this helpful? [Yes]” button

I am going to make the following assumptions:
1. It is a Poulan PP4218(WeDoNotCare), start procedure the same.
2. You removed and verified there is spark (plug replacement recommended). The plug is dry (not flooded).
3. With the saw at waist height; the starter handle held; and the saw released. It remains against the starter handle or VERY slowly lowers with a distinctive pause during each compression stroke.

Type just the model numbers (choose the suffix after the list is provided).

It needs spark, fuel, and compression to run.
An overly rich mixture should not keep it from starting.
To much or to little fuel will (most start problems)!

The start procedures are on pages 9 and 10.
STARTING A COLD ENGINE
If the engine is cold - Please read the second NOTE: before trying to start.
If warm – read the DIFFICULT STARTING (or starting a flooded engine). I would try it with choke closed first (Pull to full choke; push to off choke). Hard starting is almost always flooded on a 2-cycle engine. You can prime all you like; priming does not inject the fuel mix into the carburetor. It circulates mix from the fuel tank through the carburetor and returns any excess to the tank

Have a Poulan saw that will not start. It is getting fuel and spark. Could it be the mixture ratio of gas to oil?

If it never attempts to start and the plug is not wet.
1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Remove the air filter.
3. Pull the choke to full choke, push it fully open.
4. Put one teaspoon of fuel mix (40:1) into carburetor throat, reinstall air filter.
5 Turn on ignition.
6. Pull starter.
If it sputters or tries to start and dies there is a fuel delivery problem. Reply below with what you found and I will help repair that too.

I have a 1993 2 stroke 40 hp mercury outboard motor and it seems that whenever you start it you need to use the choke, even when it's been running for some time and warm. Is that normal for these motors?...


Use it .It is a common thing with 2 strokes.Outboards have water in them and cool down quicker than say a 2 stroke motorbike. They have no water and keep the heat in the engine longer.If it runs well,,don't spend the money.All the choke does is gives the motor a slightly richer air/fuel mix at startup.It cannot hurt the motor.Hope this helps
