    93 175 merc low idle problem

    Got a 1993 175 carb merc that the flywheel magnets came apart.
    replaced flywheel, motor will start but idles barley very low, sounds like itís running on 3 cylinders.
    give it a little throttle and itís like the other 3 cylinders jump on and sounds great.
    let it idle back down and it will idle but goes dead.
    one of the stator coils does have a small amount of damage.
    windings look good but you never know.
    any suggestions or thoughts on this?

    thanks
    jay

    Fix it a whole lot sooner than later or you’ll be buying two new switchboxes, too
