got the motors out this afternoon and had a little trouble starting the merc 9.8 so i pulled off the cowl and after it started with a few more pulls it managed to stay running but was belching fuel out of the carb intermitantly and also seems to have a tear or punture at the top of this fuel line i have circled in the picture attachment .
is this a simple fix like just replacing this hose ? , or is it unscrewing the fittings and getting new ones etc.??
any advice /help is going to be appreciated .
thank you in advance.

I missed the part about it coming out of the mouth of the carb. There ain,t but two things I know that will cause that and that is the float hanging and letting to much fuel get up to the throat and the reed valves behind the carbs are broken.
As for fuel line you can pick that up at any auto parts store. I would get a kit for that carb and clean it and rekit the carb and hope that was the problem.
