I have a 1988 model 70hp Mercury outboard on my 1990 Bass Tracker Tournament TX17. I have started having a problem with it and was wondering if any NAFF'ers might have any ideas what the problem might be before I have to take it to the shop. Although the problem is sporatic, it most often occurs when I first unload from the trailer and leave the boat ramp area. When I try to open the motor throttle up, the motor will not accelerate. It acts like its fouled a plug but eventually it will open up to full throttle and I usually don't have any more occurrances of this situation for the fishing trip. I've tried cleaning/changing plugs and have run fuel system cleaner through the engine with no improvements. Any help/ideas would be appreciated.
