ID:	45700 Cleanest carbs I have ever taken apart.
    this is the top most carb on my 115 Merc. I will remove jets and soak in cleaner at work and then blow dry thoroughly. Then rinse, lather, repeat!

    Any hints on cleaning and assembling the next 3!
    I may replace all small fuel hoses.
    Thanks, Kevin,

    Also inspect all of the small rubber oil lines and check valves (if it has them). My 225 Merc had quite a few of those small lines running all over the motor. I found some that were cracked and some that had gotten soft and came disconnected from their fittings.

      Next question, do I remove oil injection and premix?
      All carbs look very clean, yet I'm still going to soak them in neat cleaning machine, at work.
      HELP!!!

        Can you remove the jets? Use fine wire or something similar to clean them and the
        passages. Parker posted pictures of a tool
        he uses with various sizes of small rods to do this. Compressed air helps too.

          Any welding supply store sells torch tip cleaners. It's a tool that has multiple small stiff wires various sizes. This might be what you could use to clean the jets.

            Decided to retain oil injection and carbs all clean!
            Many fuel lines to replace and also the oil injection line.
            Still waiting for wife's car to be paid off so I can get my new Mercury, hint-hint!
            By the way, here's Mercury's price at BPS

                      Good choice. A little maintenance and oiling system good to go...

                        Happy Fathers day to me in the outboard department!
                        NOT!!!!!!!!!!
                        The Mercury ran Just like before, 4400-4500 max.
                        No surging, I'm officially confused!
                        New switchbox, new trigger assembly, all 4 fire.
                        Come on debt, I'm about to go against my no to little debt policy and get something that starts with the bump of a switch!
                        Please may I have some fun with my boat before I get too old or unable!
                        Yes, I'm frustrated!.

                          Take it to a shop or get someone that is real familiar with these motors to look at it. You have become too aggravated with it. Once a person gets that way, it's like they have blinders on and can not see or think, lets say outside the box. I am speaking from experience from working on cars and trucks. Sometimes it is just amazing what another set of eyes will see.

                            Thanks slough! I'm still guessing maybe it's a safety feature not allowing over 44-4500 rpm.
                            Compression test is next! OH! The pleasures and privileges of boat ownership!.

                              Going to a shop the 9th for hopefully proper diagnosis, wish me luck!
                              Other than that, it idles and runs smooth, go figure.
                              Everything Mike says about boats is true!
