Any one have any thoughts on a 88 Mercury's Classic 50 45hp? Good motor? Dependable? Notorious for any problems? Looking at a boat with this motor. Appreciate any feedback. Never have owned a Mercury.

Whether the motor has a kill switch or not is besides the point.  Has nothing to do with anything I said about the motor running.

YOU said it doesn't have a kill switch. I just told you where it was.

Not sure what the kulli switch has to do with anything, but it doesn't have one which I thought was odd.  Thanks everyone for the feedback. Not considering this boat anymore.

OK, on your tiller handle, there should be a red on/off switch. They make a little lanyard clip that fits under that switch and you attach it to yourself as the kill switch. If you yank on it it turns the switch to off.

Mf,

It is likely that the low speed jet in your carburetor is plugged, it’s an easy fix.

Happens with carbs in older motors, especially when ethanol fuel is used.  Run a splash of seafoam in every tank.
