thanks for reply...I will check if pump is sealing well...does the primer bulb affect fuel flow? It is still hard even when the engine seems to be starving/losing power?

You could try running the engine at WOT with someone squeezing the primer bulb. If it runs ok when they do this, then you have a problem with the fuel supply to the carbs.

Fuel supply problems could be:

1. blocked tank vent - unlikely in your case
2. blocked fuel filter or water in the filter housing.
3. bad fuel hose connection, which draws air.
4. Faulty fuel connector on the tank or outboard.
5. Fuel pump failure. Diaphragm stretched/holed, or badly sealing O ring to the block
6. Faulty primer bulb - could be a sticky valve inside.
7. Carb float settings

Good luck

Thanks a lot for the list....

1. blocked tank vent - unlikely in your case (I ran without fuel cap already)
2. blocked fuel filter or water in the filter housing. (new filters installed)
3. bad fuel hose connection, which draws air. (I believe I checked this correctly)
4. Faulty fuel connector on the tank or outboard. (I yet have to check pick-up tube)
5. Fuel pump failure. Diaphragm stretched/holed, or badly sealing O ring to the block (new)
6. Faulty primer bulb - could be a sticky valve inside. (not yet checked)
7. Carb float settings (a very likely suspect since carb has been opened by previous owner)

Problem still exists....aaarrrgghhh!!!!!

Well I got the fuel system sorted out, no leaks, new pump and it still has the problem.....after further investigation I just found out we havent tried replacing the trigger, we only tried replacing the stator....

Uncle Al I have a question....Is there a way of bench checking a trigger...tocheckit before installation?? I did get hold of a trigger a good running motor, but I just want to make sure if it is really ok by testing it with a tester before intalling it???

Another question...the motor is fine for several minutes before the misfiring, and I am sure I do have no rev limiter installed.....could the trigger still be the likely culprit...is there any logical explaination, from my understanding the trigger only signals when to fire a cylinder...and if doesnt miss giving a signal the 1st few minutes how can it starting giving bad signal after a couple minutes running?

On the day I decide to trash my merc 90, it seems it is now working fine, I replaced the ignition wires (seemed ok though) and then "viola" the motor seems ok....

For those of you interested on my problem....it was several problems that caused all my frustration...here is the list...

1. Main jets were clogged, that was fixed but there was still a problem in sustained cruising and WOT...
2. Whole ignition system was replaced and still had problems after a couple minutes running
3. Fuel inlet of the carbs were clogged (inlet volume ws restricted) and then resolved but I still had a missig cylinder afer sustained cruising/WOT operation..no missing cylinder idle high rpm without load...
4. Changed ignition wires, now seems ok....

I have the same problem with my 85/86 Merc 50hp 2 stroke. Red Stator and some other new parts. After a few minutes of idle, I can go WOT for about 30 sec to a minute and then it bogs down. The motor will slowly (takes about 5 sec) loose power. Idle is still smooth and even after that and if I go WOT, the engine won't rev up much, but it runs even.

Compression is 120-130psi in all holes. Just had carbs cleaned.

I will try to replace my plug wires this week. What else could it be?

Thanks

hi i am glad to read that the problem is sorted,the only way to bench test a trigger is to do a resistance test (i dont know them of the top of my head and i am on vacation now for a fortnight so the figures are not available to me) but we prefure to check by voltage with the obm either running or on the starter motor, it is a known problem that either a high speed bobbin or a low speed bobbin to fail after a short time running usually black stators .

I had the very same problem on my 90 merc, its as if you have lost to gear!!
I checked and changed most things to find out it was a sticking stator and it wasnt advancing! I got a new stator cleaned and greased everything else and she ran fine
