Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Did you install a primer bulb in the new fuel line?
do you have the serial number on the engine?
It is located on the right side of the swivel tube.
It is located here.
It will start with a 1B, followed by 6 more numbers. It is important because 2006 was a model change for Mercury, I need to know exactly which one you have.
Its on a small sticker
Did you see the pic I sent?
does the engine cover look like this one?
ok, got it. Now that I know which you have, we can move forward. Have you tested the fuel pressure at the fuel rail when the enigne is keyed up?
Yes, I saw the pic.
Any flattening of the fuel line can cause a restriction. Can you rent a gauge to check the pressure. I do not want to lead you down the wrong path with troubleshooting something that may not be a problem.
In the video, it is the standard pressure gauge. If you loot at your fuel rail on the back left of the engine, you will see a test port, it is like a car tire valve. Gauge screws onto there, pump the primer bulb until firm, then turn the key on. Watch the pressure on the gauge. It should come up to around 40 PSI.
Most auto parts stores will let you rent one. Let me know the pressure and we can go from there.
Yes it is saved, I see the entire thing. When you reply, it comes directly to me.
Your welcome. Talk to you soon.
