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.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
