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.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
