Twice my 1992 Mariner has died and been very hard to start after trolling for about 20 minutes. The first time was about a month ago and then it happened again today. The fuel was purchased in two different locations so I don't think it is a fuel problem. In between the two times the engine has run just fine. The first time I had the fuel filter cleaned and changed the fuel/water separator filter. Each time I have had to pump the fuel bulb then move the throttle to the cold start position. It was hard to get the engine started again but once started it ran just fine.
Any ideas on what the problem could be?
