I had that issue and found the throttle return spring was bad. replaced the spring, adjusted the idle, and all was well.
I will check for that.
Thanks !

What do you have to do after it “dies” to get it started again?
Usually I pump the throttle once and it starts.
Sometimes I just turn the key without advancing the throttle and it starts.
I did a vacume check and it was perfect.

Mercrusier 140 ,Starts, runs, and dies !

Mercrusier 140 2bl. carb. starts, runs fine, and dies.
Sounds like it runs out of gas.
Boat has brand new gas tank, gas lines, water separator, fuel pump that is pumping when the engine is cranking, new carb and filter.
Gas tank is venting.
What would cause this ?
Plesase advise. Thanks

Re: Christo - Long Island Sound

Skippers; I have aquired a 23' Glen L Double Eagle and have two questions. 1.) Has / does anyone have port and starboard belly tanks in this boat, and if so do you have the dimensions for these tanks ? 2.)
