Customer Question

my 50 HP is hard to crank and idles rough. We rebuilt all 3 carburators and primer bulb replaced, but still hard to crank. Runs good at full throttle.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: did you get my message
JA: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: all 3 spark plugs have also been changed,
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Marine Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

By hard to crank, you mean start, or just turn over?

Has the engine been sitting?
