    I have a 75 hp Mercury, not sure what year. Does it have a fuel filter I can change or not? If so where is it located normally?

    Neal,
    I'm sure it will have a filter, bubba will no doubt tell you where to find it, but no matter what, all boats should have a water separating fuel filter between the fuel tank and motor. These are not real expensive and are easy to change...W

    I think you just take it apart to clean. If my memory is right, my 90 Merc just has like one knob you unscrew and a screen will come out, and you can spray it with carb cleaner.
