The engine will not start, just cranking. Gas line is good

Customer Question

The engine will not start, just cranking. Gas line is good and batteries fully charged. Does not have the same crank sound as when it would normally start. Normally starts in fourth rev but now just cranks. Engine has been regularly maintained and serviced. 429 hours on engine. Optimax 150 hp. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

has your engine been sitting for sometime unused?

Have you already checked the spin-on fuel filter for water?

How is the starting sound different? Can you explain some on that?
