Customer Question

I have a 2003 Searay 320 Sundancer, its out of the water and I'm doing some work. Port engine was firing on starter fluid, added gas to both tanks and discovered a fuel leak under the starboard engine at the cooler, had to pull it to fix. With starboard still out I decided to trial the port engine with gas, it cranks but no spark. With gas from the tank or with starter fluid, nothing. Since it was running last week I wondered if pulling the starboard engine and disconnecting its electronics could be the root cause.

Hi Bob. This engine requires a scan tool to work on. There isn't anything you can do without one except make sure everything looks plugged in.

So no reason to suspect that disconnecting the one engine would impact the other engine.

No, the engines work independently of eachtoher.
