    i just finished cleaning and rebuilding carbs on 125 mercury ob. it seem to idle and take gas just fine. but i pumped the primer bulb when idling and it ran at a faster idle while i had pressure on bulb and would slow down as soon as i let off. i also replace gaslines and drained gas and put new gas in. does this indicated i have a air leak at one of the connections.thanks boliver

    The pick up tube in the tank if its a portable one might be slightly stopped up or not big enough to gather enough fuel for that big ole motor.
