    Dunno but for the over 500 bucks I payed for a peice of mind service when I bought mine and the things I found after that had been overlooked I will be doing it myself from now on.

    drain carb and check for crap .maybe disassemble carb and check gaskets for perishing if older outboard as the unleaded fuel can be hard on the rubber in older outboards.

    Drain carb yes....never disassemble carb unless you have a rebuild kit on hand.

    Have a look at the front of the motor when fully tilted and you should see a plastic ring thingy clamped onto the horizontal 'hinge pin' housing. Possibly clagged with grease, so clean thoroughly with degreaser/WD40 type stuff. If unable to follow my suggestions, Google images will show the part and location. The plastic ring sometimes breaks but can be substituted with a stainless clamp.

    No reason at all you shouldnt do your own servicing if you have the time (All there on utube) . One upside is you may learn enough about that motor to get it going in a "situation"

    And yeah dont strip the carbs unless you have gasket kit.
