Merc 40hp 4stroke

Question

RipJigger

I have a 99 mercury 40hp 4stroke outboard.Since the day it was new I have been having some trouble with it dogging out when you give it full throttle,ex:when trying to pull the kids behind giving it a goose from a standstill it just powers out or dies completly.I brought it back to the dealer twice with no solution.Just wondering if anybody else having this problem or is it my eternal bad luck.

I've seen quite a few of the newer mercs do that. My old mans got a 2001 that did. I took a look at it and all it needed was to have the idle adjusted a little. You'd be amazed at what a small adjustment on the carbeurator would do. I'm not sure what they did at the dealer, but I'm just telling what worked for me. Its always a good idea to have the repair book for any toy such as a boat motor. If I were you, I'd go get the book and see if you can make the adjustments yourself. Matt

Thanks Big,they adjusted the carbs at the dealer and it helped a little.Someone told me that if I get in touch with merc i'll find that there is a recall on that particular carb system so I'll have to try that. Thanks,Ripjigger

I just orderd a new 40 hp Merc 4 stroke today. I had a Yamaha 40 on order, but they're out at least 45 days for delivery. Changed to Merc because they are fuel injected now. The Yamaha has a carb.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      I bet one of those little cans of cat food would work too.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
