Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Do you know what spark plugs are in the engine?
Have you already done any troubleshooting on your own yet?
Does the engine smoke more at idle?
Thanks, ***** ***** have the serial number from one of the engines handy?
Sorry for all the delays.. It is defiantly a Monday here.
The engine calls for Champion QL77CC spark plugs. It ill not run really well on NGK plugs for some reason.
Can you locate the square pulse pump on the engine, remove the two bolts that hold it to the block, and remove the outermost hose. Use the primer bulb to see if you get any fuel out of the front or rear covers on it.
Can you pull the plugs and do a reading on them? Is any darker or lighter than the others.?
Sounds good. Talk to you then.
Yes a video would be great. If you can post it to you tube or another file sharing site.
Can you post the link to those vids. There are literally thousands of Merc vids on YouTube. I cannot locate yours.
Can you take the pulse pump from the side of the block, remove the hose from the front plate leave the hoses connected to the center plate. then pump the primer bulb and see if you get any fuel from the elbow on the front or the hole out of the back.
Sry, I read back and missed that.
Take the flywheel cover off and make sure that the stater is not staying engaged.
Have you already done a compression test on this engine?
Did you look at the starter to see if it is staying engaged?
Have you already done a compression test?
I heard some strange noises from it when it was running. That is why I was asking about the starter and the compression. A failed MAP would also trigger an alarm. You can unplug it and see of the engine runs any differently.
