1997 Mercury Sea Pro 40 horse 2 stroke wouldn't start easy or stay running after i bought it used. Took it to repair shop and they said carborater was " all gunked up" and they rebuilt it (cleaned it)& put a new fuel pump on. 250 dollars later and three times out it ran great.Fourth time had trouble starting it at ramp then went out and after third time starting it up it wouldn't. I'm going to take carb out and clean it myself. Should I add a fuel additive every time i fill my gas and oil mix? Any tips on the carb work as i am new at this? Anything else to help would be appreciated.
