Problem with 30hp mariner 85 model

Post by Fishkiller » 09 May 2011, 13:17

When the motor is running it makes loud poping noise that I don't know what it is. It sounds like its back firing though the exaughst I don't know much about outboards. I sold all my race cars and racing parts to start up my bowfishing addiction so I bought a small boat to start off with 1542, motor was free . Do you think a new set of plugs might help if so which ones do I buy? I took the carb off and cleaned it it seems to be fine. It seems that something else is wrong with the carb cause when you prime the bubble on the tank the next time I start it I have to sqeeze the bubble again, I mean like 30min later. Please help Mike Mudd Dawg productions. BACK FORTY BOW FISHING

I am no expert but if you have to prime it again you may need a fuel pump.
