Hello,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
You say won't start however what I would need to know is cranks but does not start or does not crank/turn over either.
If it does not even crank that could be related to the bilge pump not working, could be related to an electrical issue or lack there of in terms of loss of power or ground.
One way would have you checking starting side to see if getting power from start switch to solenoid, then other things as well, the other way has you checking things like compression, spark (in line spark tester), fuel pressure/flow, etc.
If the above does not help then please provide the extra info above and please elaborate on "will not start" and exactly what it does.
Thank you!
- Joe
