Yea I definitely want the service manual. I like to have as much info as possible. Here's where I'm confused.

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

Found it on boats.net. It's #16 on the schematic part number 823707 2 REPAIR KIT for $59. Same as Crowley for $73. I just ordered that and the water pump kit. Might as well change the impeller, who knows how old it is! Same one you listed also JMichael. Thanks for your help guys! I'll update after t...

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

I didn't see any bar codes on the engine. Only the sticker on the right that gives serial number, Hp, year, max rpm etc. and under the cover another sticker that gave some specs like timing and idle rpms.

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

Yea that's where I found the number, I just want to check on the motor before I order anything. I don't see the carb rebuild kit on boats.net. I found it on crowleymarine.com for $73.

Thanks again!

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

I have to look again when I get home but the sticker your talking about doesn't have a model number. It has the information you said plus serial number. It says 25hp ELH. But I just looked at boats.net. Looks like the 25 hp ELH is possibly 1025311VD. I'll look around the motor to verify. https://www...

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

Cool thanks for the info. I went to crowleymarine.com I now need to figure out the model number for my motor. It's not I'm the sticker. I thought I would just look it up by the year and 25 HP ELH.

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

Thanks I think I'll order a carb rebuild kit and give it a try. I have plenty of tools just wasn't sure if I'd need any special testing equipment. I'm sure I won't have any problem.

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

Haha can you list the what not to do's?? Lol I am pretty good mechanically so I don't mind attempting it. I need to find a service manual also. The question is do I have all the right tools.

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

I am doing a seafoam treatment hoping it will clean the carb enough to solve the problem. Here's a short video of how it's running. With the hose hooked up with muffs I can put it in gear and rev it no problem. Not sure if the seafoam helped or if it's because the motor isn't under a load. [youtube]...

2-stroke 25HP mercury stalls while accelerating.

Just bought a 1999 2-stroke 25HP ELH Mercury motor. Run pretty good but I think it might need some carb work. I changed the plugs, cleaned the gas filter, and used fresh gas with ethanol treatment and mercury synthetic 2cycle oil, 50:1. Motor starts right up and seems to idle fine. It'll will putt a...

Between both of us we boated a mixed bag of 28 SM/LM Bass (mostly SM), 3 rockbass, 1 yellow perch, and 1 bluegill. On one part of the lake, baitfish were busting th...

Jay415's Alumacraft MV1648 -Finished & update w/fishing pics

Test run with the new motor went well. I replaced the plugs and changed the lower unit oil. Seems like it might need a little carb work. Wide open was good but putting along it wanted to stall, and when starting to accelerate it wanted to stall. I had to play with the choke when accelerating from a ...
