I just purchased a used 2004 Mercury 15 HP, 4 stroke, outboard motor. The motor is in "like new" condition. When I purchased it the gas tank hose to the portable tank was connected. I diconnected the hose at the motor to fill the tank. Now I can not get it connected. The connector is somewhat different than the ones I had years back. The large end within the connector seems to fit ok. The small black part does not fit. I have tryed to hold the lock (snap) back when I insert it but it just does't fit. I don't want to force it. Any advice??
