Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Would you please post the full model and serial number of the engine?
I am not available for phone service at this time.
Was the fuel in the boat dumped before you started the engine?
Ok, can you test the coils for spark.
Ok, did the motor even try to hit when you sprayed the starting fluid into the carbs?
Disconnect the black and yellow wire at the switch box and see if the engine will try to fire at all.
Is this the two cylinder or the 3 cylinder?
that is the choke wire. your electronics look like this one here?
On part 34 there will be a black/yellow wire, disconnect that one. then try the spark again.
remove the plugs and see if the ends of them are really wet.
Do you know what the compression of the engine is?
Your engine needs 3 things to run correctly, compression, spark and fuel. If one of the 3 are missing it will not run. I can guide you through anything on this engine. But I do need some testing done on your part to get to the correct answer.
Once you are home, we can continue if you wish to.
