hey all, I have after wanting one since I was a kid brought an SR4 (1977) with original set up, its absolutly immaculate no patches or mods of any sort, its spent its entire life best i can make out under cover which has really protected it and im a little in love
the engine which again i believe is orginal 50hp mercury blue stripe doesnt start first time, at the moment i hand pump fuel into the air inlet on the carb (fairly certain i shouldnt do this but ignorance is bliss and it works) one pull and it starts and runs really well really really well again a little in love. she will start again if i stop her but not if she is left for over 10 mins or so.
this is some thing i can live with but fairly certain this will be an easy fix and thought id ask the experts.
really appreciate any help you guys and gals can give.
P.S. im not mechanically minded in any way so keep it simple but do ask away photos to follow
