Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Have you checked to see if the engine has any spark? What is the model number on the engine?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This is Dick. How would we check for a spark? It is a Yamaha 50 4stroke about 5 years old.
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Hi Dick. You would use either an adjustable gap spark tester or a timing light. Does the engine beep when you turn the key? Is this engine carbureted or fuel injected, do you have the model number handy?

We are going to call a friend tonight who repairs engines. Thanks for your hell though.

I meant help, not hell. Sorry.

No problem. Good luck! If you still have a question afterwards I am still here and you can post back any time. Jason
