Yamaha outboard 15lh backfire or missing low rpm

Hello Bill, have you replaces the spark plugs? Do this first.
If it still backfires/misses.. have the carb cleaned and set by a competent professional.. if it still does this, remove the flywheel and see if one of the magnets has broken or come loose...(my own experience!)

Mercury 1989 60 HP Outboard Motor manual to find gas to oil ratio

50:1 But if your doing mostly low rpm cruising (trolling) then you could reduce that a bit to 75:1 to help reduce smoke. If you do mostly mid to higher rpm cruising, then 50:1 (1 pint to 6 gallons. )
Or 200mls in 20 liters if your Canadian.

My boat motor has low compression @ number 1 cylinder how can I fix it

2 possibilities:
-1 Your head gasket is burned. Caution, some Mercury engines have no head gaskets. I could tell if I had your serial number.
-2 Your cylinder has seized. If it's the upper cylinder, you'll have also to check your cooling system! Look at your spark plug if you can't see some 'aluminum' deposit on it. Or, inspect the inside of that cylinder with an endoscope.
Such an old engine is mostly not worth a complete overhaul. So, in case of seizing, just hone that 1 cylinder and use a new piston with rings.

It's in any case better not to use that engine in this state.

Have 115 Hp mercury outboard motor missing at full throttle and on idle. At mid throttle it is running fine. Any Idea what the problem could be. Thanks, Milton

Have your spark plugs changed AND carbs cleaned and adjusted.
Usually that can also be caused by a seized advance system ( plate under the flywheel, commanded to turn with the throttle linkage... )
