Outboard Running Problems

Hi all,

I have a 6 year old Mercury 4.0 (2 stroke) horsepower outboard motor. It has always run fine, however I ran it for an hour maybe on regular gas this spring. Although, since then it has appeared to have no problems. This fall though the motor does not want to stay running. It will crank with the choke open but before I can put it on half choke it cuts off. And then if I try to start it on half or no choke the same thing happens.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Spencer
