Default Picked up a '86 Merc 45hp w/new prop.

Picked up a '86 Merc 45hp w/new prop. Friend of mine in his late 60's had it on his Bass Tracker (fresh water only) and he was tired of flooding out the motor/carb issue. I told him to get them rebuilt but he has a new grand-baby and doesn't want to be on the water if it acts up so he is buying a new 40hp Merc 4s. He said it runs great and the power trim works but when you want the motor to trim down it takes a minute.he said some seals etc/bleed off, maybe the fluid is low. But all in all, rebuild the carbs and it's ready to rock. Controls came with it as well as new prop hub etc. He said he never drained the gas out of the carb/he lives on a lake but it sits during the winter. Won't fit the Skiff I just bought and I'm looking for a motor for that as well. Just thought I would share and see your opinion on the carbs/adjustment etc.
Might trade for a good 25hp 2s.
Thanks,
