Hi. I have a 3.0 mercruiser with a carb. After running it for about an hour, I shut it down and have lunch. When I go to start up again, it cranks for a while before it starts up. I understand it's not fuel injected,but it kinda worries me that it takes so long to fire. Any ideals? Thanks in advance.

Some times in hot weather and a hot engine, it will be hard to start because the fuel in the carburetor almost boils and is slow to fire. Cool
