You might want to decide if it is spark fuel first. Easiest way is to short squirt some starting fluid in the top carb and see if it sputters. Don't worry about oil mix as there is plenty up there from not firing. If it is just one coil not firing, (assuming it's patterned after the Mercury) exchange that coil for one on the motor that is firing. If the problem follows the coil, buy a new coil, if it stays with the top cylinder, you will need a set of triggers under the flywheel.

If you had luck with the carb, rebuild and adjust them all, getting a good link and sync job on them so they all open at the same time and all go to WOT at tne same time will make that motor fly.

How do i top up the lubricating oil in the hydraulics of a mercury outboard engine


I suppose you mean the oil in the Trim system...

Lift the engine all the way up,
Place the jackstand to keep the engine fully up.
You'll see a plastic plug in the center cylinder.
Unscrew that plug. ( There can be some pressure, take care of your eyes!)
Fill with ATF-oil till the level is at the bottom of the plug hole.
Screw the plug back in.
Lower the engine.
Done!
