North West outboards have a good following on Facebook and travel to you

SSI marine Manchester (Wigan)

I haven't any direct experience of using either of the above as i have always tried to fix/service all my 2smoke mercury engine's

Give the carb a clean. Itís remarkably easy to do. Just donít change any of the air mixture settings unless you want to spend time resetting them.

As has been said a carb clean and a fuel pump diaphragm kit, new plugs, fuel filter.

These things are pretty simple to service and fix and with plenty of help from youtube clips, I actually have a official merc workshop manual for my 60hp 2S so if you needed a copy of a page or two I could send you them.

You also learn plenty by doing it yourself.

just a thought.
