We got a 1990 Mercury
Seapro 10M engine
with the dink that came with the boat when we bought it. Working my way through systems, I find myself now trying to get this 24 year old outboard
to run. It shows promise. Has spark, will run briefly on a couple cc's of fuel
squirted into a cylinder. Took carb apart last night and soaked it in the Gunk carb cleaner. You know the one gallon bucket with the little tray you lower into it.
I don't have any documentation
on this engine
. It's all pretty straightforward at this level, for a two stroke. But I found one little issue that I need some information on.
On the carb bottom there is a little hose nipple, with a small flexible black plastic hose or tube that runs from the bottom of the carb to a t-connector, where it splits off and runs this same plastic tubing to each cylinder head
I don't know what the nomenclature of this tubing assembly is, or what it does.
Anyone here familiar with the old Merc 10 hp two strokes?
