    Can't speak for a 70 but I did a Mercury 90. Truth be told I squirted gas in the spark plug hole and it fired right over.

    If you do this just make sure the ignition is turned on.

    They're all easy if they start the first or second pull. I had a 200 merc. that would start the first short pull if the battery was dead. Years ago a friend had a 40 that would take us 10 pulls each to start. Not fun on a 90 degree day and we were young.
    Fishing can be anything you want it to be
