That is the incorrect sticker for a '67 model, if in fact that's what block you have??
That sticker belongs to a 73 model, which match your outer cowls. Grrr.
Where are you located? I think you have a Frankenmerc? I hate them.

As for number 4, I suspect spark, not fuel.
The bottom Carbie fuels both 3 & 4. Even a crook/bent reed would prevent 4 from receiving fuel.

Leave plug in 4 and place a grounded (spare) plug on number 4 lead. Start motor and check spark for strength.
Never start motor without pug in hole. Its starves piston, crank etc of oil, plus it will start a small fire at the back of the motor. Not a good look!

Thanks Mercman
cranked the outboard at night . no leakage
when i cleaned the dizzy i checked all conections at the boot and spring sparkplug end  ..yes copper wire
sanded all contacts and springs and rotor and dizzy to remove any bad connection .corrosion
checked for continuity with a tester ..cranked engine with a spark tester and all good sparks
checked tooth on wheel and belt .. arrow and timing dots line up like a straight edge was used
dropped it back a tooth  .. starts  idles .. timing mark on flash on cylinder 1 is right on .......no 4 and line cast in top of castingPhoto i hope )
sticker could be wrong.....when arrow and marks line up ...idling on 800 rpm its timing at 4 - 6 deg on sticker marks
seems to be like they say in the manuals
any way  tes you are correct again Mercman ...no 4 plug is cleaner than the rest
has signs thats its been fireing but its not as oily and fuelie as the others  yet its getting good spark
surface disgarge plugs ..inner coil is black yet the outside circle is clean ..the other 3 are burnt black
i laugh as i know that im now moving to another part of the engine arnt i ...
lack off fuel getting into cylinder 4 ... even though i cleaned the carbies ?..
Compression  ...ill check

Are all plugs fouling equally?
Are any plug leads grounding out? Check for this at night time is best.
Have the plug leads been replaced by silicone? Should be good old copper on a '67 model, I reckon.  Undecided
Is an ill fitting plug boot preventing a good contact between the spring and the plug top?
Pull back all plug boots and examine all connections.
Is belt out by one tooth?
Was timing conducted at WOT? Mark, am I right here, I don't have my factory service manual with justme right now.
Re-check compression. Never trust hearsay.

well it works- but im back to square 1
starts well idols well revs to 4800 at pier
but only 1800 under load
removed the plugs at home ..black ..its running rich
but that could be that at wide open throttle alot of fuel is going in  at 1800 rpm they are fouling up
my hunt for the solution continues
more research ..
ive never checked compression but the past mechanic said good comp and good spark!
rectifier is good .maybe stator not enough power under load for hot sparks maybe
now i am definatly starting to nuts

Happy new year to everyone on The Board.

Looks like the Dealer trick from the old days of making an outboard look like a later model. Also the engine block is painted black but should be silver. May have had a new Mercury power head fitted when it had the "blueband" makeover?

Black painted blocks didn't appear until the Blueband series. As the 4 cyl 65's  were phased out when the blue bands arrived, none would have had black blocks in their original format.

Hi Ken,

Are you still about?  Apologies I never followed up on this...

Life (marriage, kids, forgetting my password) all got in the way....

My Savage side treads are still in quite good condition, so could be used as a base mould, but would need cleaning up on first cast to make them clear for future casts....
