    Chip at Harbin Marine in Lorton is the best Merc guy on the East Coast. he can fix it.

    Re: plugs - a usually pull plugs half way thru the season and clean them w/ solvent and fine steel wool. Motor runs great after that.

      Agree with 31, Chip at Harbine can do it. I had a 90 Merc before and never had an issue. It is a 2001 and my buddy is still running it. Shouldn't have to replace plugs but once every couple of years.
