Need Mercury 9.9hp Manual - Advice Too

Hi Folks,

We just inherited a Mercury 9.9hp 2-stroke

I was wondering if anyone has a link to the manual?

Uncle Gord, this sounds like your department!


Thanks for your help

Also any pointer for bugs/common problems with these?


Mark

Hey Mark,

Do you have the version with the shift lever or the one where it's integrated into the tiller-throttle?

I had the latter and it is very sensitive to submersion ..... don't ask ;-) there's dual coils in the housing for firing the sparkplugs: one for idle/low load and another one for high load. I had a fine running engine at idle or even high rpm in neutral but one cylinder didn't fire when opening throttle in forward gear. Multiple dealers took multiple turns to find that one. But I loved the engine (I had 15hp which is the same as the 8 and 9.9; just the carburetor is different).

cheers,
Nick.

Hi Nick,

Its the one with the integratered throttle gears on the tiller.


Thanks for the info.

I'm doing a bit of a service on it now, will buy a new fuel tank tomorrow as its very old and then give it a go!

I can't wait to try it on Lil Dink. She has only ever had a 3.3hp so it could be a bit scary all round!

Basic manual available free online...

I found this basic manual. It's available free online.

Outboard Motors for Pacific Island Mariners

Be very careful about putting the tiller over hard.Tell you why one day when Marlyn forgives me.

Thanks for the pdf manual.

I am trying to empty the carbureter... but I dont know how. ON the little outboard theres a screw in the bottom of the floty bubble thingy that lets and bad fuel out.

Mark

I think a 9.9hp on a dink rated to 4hp will be a tad scary!

Thanks Gord

Thanks mate

Twist the handle so that the engine is in forward then push down on the handle while pulling at the rear of the engine.
