Customer Question

I have a 1983 Four Winns, with a mercruiser 140. It ran fine for an hour, I shut down for a couple hours, and when I went to start up, it was hard to start, and when I did get it running, it was missing on 1 cylinder. What should I look into?

Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
When was the last time the engine had a full and complete tune up? That would be new points, cap, rotor, plugs, wires, all filters. Setting dwell, timing, idle mixture and idle speed?
When was the last time that was all done?
