  • Tune-up needed

    I give up. I thought that I would be able to dial in my motor Myself. But I can't. So I need somebody that can do it. Runs great but Idle is way off or when idle is on wont stay running when put into gear. Can deliver and not in a hurry. John 425-418-9966

          Chuck, Ingvar hooked me up with Thom. Thom emailed me EASY steps. I just couldnt understand the manual. But I get what Thom sent me. I hope to get to it soon. John

            Frankenmerc- My new Hero

            A while back I asked for help dialing in my mercury 115. Reading the book was confusing. I would approach it every couple of days and it did not become any clearer. Enter Frankenmerc. The Doctor Emailed me 5 easy to follow pages that made working on the motor FUN. It fired right up. I was able to spend some time on Lake Goodwin last weekend. Thank you Ingvar for hooking me up and thanks Doc for the help. John Berg

              Would it be appropriate to share those steps with the rest of us who are adventurous, yet scared to get started?

                Karl, and others,
                If you send me a direct e-mail asking for the syncronization steps for the inline-6 Merc, I am more than willing to share the Mercury Magic.
                John's Merc has adi (alternator driven ignition) no distributor.
                Older Mercs had a variety of ignitions, so be sure and clarify which beast you need help with.
