Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
What is the model number on the engine?
When was the last time the engine made full power, have you ever personally seen it make full power under a load?
How old is the fuel?
Have you done any testing on your own yet?
I'm not going to call you unless I know the exact model number of the engine. I need to know that just to know what you have...
The next thing is what kinds of questions did you have for me?
You wrote that it died. Is the engine running or not?
Step one is to check spark output on all 6 cylinders with a timing light or adjustable gap spark tester. Is that something you can do?
Hello. My name is Tan.
Can you get an adjustable spark gap tester from the auto parts house?
Here's an example of a spark gap tester. We must determine if you have spark on all cylinder or not. http://www.nationaltoolwarehouse.com/Ignition-Spark-Tester-with-Adjustable-Gap-P41027.aspx?zmam=31282435&zmas=50&zmac=750&zmap=THX404&gclid=CjwKEAjwkPS6BRD2ioKR7K245jASJAD1ZqHOpYxiCmpu4LvK4gTBZ4BpH249ZKou9xOb-97ok-lJ9BoCK7rw_wcB
Even if it runs we still need to determine if you have spark on all or some cylinders. Then we have an idea of where to start.
