Mariner 135 V6 Starting ?

I have a Mariner 135 V6 that is @1990 vintage. What a lovely noise it makes but I haven't got the technique right for starting it!
Not too bad from cold, lever lifted up and a bit of choke & were away but it does stall if you're slow into gear...
More of an issue if we're fishing for half an hour, if you miss the first fire up it can spin without even a cough. Choke and it floods....
Currently trying to lift the cold lever before turning it off !!

Any clues welcome please ?

Cheers for that. We're a week into our fortnight on Kintyre so don't want to start stripping anything or risk losing the rest of the holiday!
It always starts eventually but it's a bit of a lottery. Tickover's high if I lift the lever on the remote but of course won't then go into gear.
What about if I adjust it so that it ticks over at a bit higher rpm ? What's the main effect of lifting the lever on the remote ?
Thanks.

HI,paddlers
LIFTING THE COLD START LEVER ADVANCES THE TIMING,

IDEL CARB JETS SHOULD BE SET AT 3/4 OF A TURN FROM LIGHTLY SEATED,
REGARDS,
GONE FISHING.

id say the timing needs advancing slightly - try half or even a full turn of the screw. this should help the engine to 'catch' and also have the effect of increasing the idle speed. it will also help stop the engine fouling its plugs whilst idling for any length of time. just be careful not to advance too far.

Million dollar question. Where's the timing screw to adjust ? I'm no mechanic, happy to change the impeller, thermostats, oil etc etc but have a morbid fear of carbs & timing...!

Golden rule:
Take note of any existing settings before you adjust them.

No it's not. Screws on the carb don't do anything to timing.


You need the idle stop screw that's on the arm attached to the control cable.
