All the big 4 cylinder 4 stroke Mercury/Mariners have a fuel supply module. If you use a primer bulb with these engines, then it can cause the fuel system to lock up and become unusable until the pressure has been released.
This applies to the 80 through 150hp naturally aspirated 4 strokes and the Verados. Basically if it tells you and primer bulb isn't needed then leave it out.

Yeap No primer bulb on all L4NA Engines, (4 stroke EFI) It has as said, a Fuel supply module (FSM) which will draw the fuel up via a electric lift pump, the lift pump will time out once the FSM is full. If you hand prime the FSM will be overfilled and go into the return pipe which goes to the inlet manifold. The engine will sense fuel in the return line and it will not let you start, so it wont go down in a ball of fire! It just wont start. So No Primer Bulb!.
