Mercurey 9.9 Bigfoot HELP!
Hello, haven't posted in a while... been sailing. nuff said.
The other day I go to take my son for a sail and as I'm motoring away from the slip the motor dies. I cant get it started again before I drift to a bulkhead and tie off temporarily.
After a little messing about I get started at full choke and 1/4 throttle I then settle to idle and let her run for a moment.
Checking around I notice some water coming out of what looks like the shaft above the water line, and there seems to be some oil residue with it.
I slowly got back to the slip and tied up. so it dose work for at least short jaunts. like 150 yd.
freshly cleaned carb, new fuel filter. Do I now need a new head gasket? Help!
