Mercury repair....

8 posts in this topic

I have an old Mercury Kiekeifer motor that needs some work. Is there a place in the metro area that specializes in Mercs? I thought there is a place in Minneapolis, but not sure.

Thanks in advance wink.gif

Robbinsdale Marine works on old outboard motors - can't give you the phone number here. Got in trouble last time.

Robbinsdale Marine has taken good care of a friend of mine. We had problems on the water last year and we were on the phone with them for 15-20 minutes. They're usually very fast, as well.

are they reasonably priced?, got a 6 horse johnson, a 76, that ocasionally spits and sputters at WOT, then runs fine. thinking maybe points or condenser, since it sat in pasture for 5 years with no use. anyone know of a problem like that and the solution??

I have a 78 6 horse johnson. A couple of years ago it did the same thing. It ended up being the fuel line screen housing (i am sure that is not what it is called) had a small crack in it. changed it, at a cost of 4 or 5 dollars and it still works great. Also check your oil gas mixture.

thanx for the reply avidfisher, was that screen located where the gas line plugs into the outboard, at the fuel pump, or behind the carb in the outboard?

Also, i believe i am running a 50:1 mixture

it was located at the carberator. If you were to try and prime the hose with out it running, you could see a little gas coming out which is how i noticed it. Hope this helps. I got the part at robinsdale marine. i was also told (before i found the problem) to check the hose and also the can cause any escape of pressure can cause it to sputter i also changed the plug which you have to get at a marine. Parts store does not carry it.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
