Welcome to JustAnswer

Has your Polaris been laid-up for more than a

couple of months, or at all, before this

problem occurred?

Does everything sound/seem normal when you

go to start her?

Sorry to have to ask what may seem like stupid questions, but it is obviously difficult diagnosing problems remotely, I cannot see, hear, touch or smell anything & I have only what a customer tells me to make a correct diagnosis.
Also I dont know how proficient a customer is or what they may have done already. So I need to ask stuff which may seem obvious or unrelated

Please do not rate my service low without

giving me a chance to rectify any problem

I will be AFK for a while now (dinner date) so I'll check for your replies when I'm back & ponder this meanwhile
