I was not getting spark and I ended up replacing the EI

Customer Question

I was not getting spark and I ended up replacing the EI rotor and cap. I now have spark but the boat won't start. If I hit it with starting spray it fires but immediately dies. There appears to be good spark on the plugs now. The fuel pump is working.
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: No I think that is it.
