Customer Question

I have a 1978 28 ft Bertram. Thenginmes are 220 hp. I just replaced the long block and the engine is back in the boat. However it wont start. It is not getting electricl to the injection area. When you measure the voltage it shows 12 volts but when you strt it goes away. Do you have any suggestions?
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?

You need to be more specific than that. Is this a Mercruiser, Volvo, something else? Do you have a model or serial number on the engine so I can identify it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's mercruisser

Don't have engine numbers handy
Expert:  Jason replied 10 months ago.

Mercruisers are cataloged by serial number. I would need the serial number on your engine just to know what you have. If you don't have it with you, just reply back once you do have it and we can take it from there.
