I had a problem with my (then) two year old 50 HP merc. I had just changed out the fuel water seperator (exterior to the motor) and although it ran 30 minutes earlier I could not get the motor to start at all. Good spark, plugs wet with fuel.

When I called Dandy Haven Marina about bringing it in for repair, the mechanic told me to remove all of the plugs and crank it for 30 seconds to clear the fuel which builds up (somewhere inside the engine, I don't remember where) when you flood it, or should I say over-flood it. Sure enough when I replaced the plugs it started right up.
