I have a 9.9 hp four stroke Mercurey outboard (new in 2015)

Customer Question

I have a 9.9 hp four stroke Mercurey outboard (new in 2015) that ran fine all last duck season. When I went to test it in my driveway today I had a massive leak in the hose connection to the motor when I started to pressurize the line. I think I may be missing a seal or something in the hose, but I don't know. The fitting is lose (wobbles back and forth) when it's connected. What do you think? Thanks. Dave
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: Don't think so.
