Customer Question

I have a 4.3L mercruiser on a 1996 Stingray 609zp boat. The boat has been sitting a week and I tried to start the engine. I have power to the boat, I have the throttle forward - the engine will not turn over. It rumbles like it wants to turn over, it just isn't. Any idea on how to get the engine started?

Can you tell me about the noise you hear or what you think is happening?
Do the pulleys or belt move on the engine at all when the engine is trying to be started?
