This motor started fine a week ago then this weekend it started hard had to crank a little bit. Then today nothing would not start. So I pulled the cover off and found a oil line was cracked so I replaced it. And still it won't star is there something I need to do like get the air out of the lines or some thing. Thanks

I have a mercury 150. Went through those problems last year. I changed everything, fuel hoses and lines inside and out. Removed carbs and cleaned them out (pretty dirty in there). New filter, and fuel pump. If you change your filter make sure the openings are at least 5/16, the 1/4 doesn't cut it. When cold, turn the key to the on position and push it in and hold for ten seconds, that will allow some fuel to trickle into the carbs. Mine starts easily now, be careful checking for spark, you can short out your power switches if you don't know what you are doing. That can get expensive.

Did you check spark
Did you check fuel to carb
Did you check compression
An oil line will not make it not start.
Is this motor direct oil inject?
I second this, start with the basics.
No, a broken oil line won't cause a no start condition but it can burn the motor up.
