Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
All Mercurys are cataloged by serial number can I get that number please.
Next, do you have a decent quality digital volt/ohm meter and do you know how to take resistance measurements? If yes, are you near the engine now and ready to work?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I do not hame an ohm meter
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
Without a meter there isn't much we can test. That being said, what kinds of questions did you have about the engine?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If I purchase one and contact back later..would someone be available?
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
I'll be on and off throughout the day. The issue here though is you would have to know how to use a meter, it's not something I can teach you how to use.

All outboard powered boats are supposed to have one installed in the boat by the drivers area by law.

Any other thoughts?

Locate the switchbox and disconnect the black/yellow wire, and try it again. Does spark return?
