Boating - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Check the ignition system, check for spark at the plug, if it has no spark check your points, ignition coil, etc. If it has spark you need to check the fuel system so that's gonna boil down to an obstructed fuel line, a clogged fuel filler, or something in the carburetor(s). That should lead you to figuring it out my friend, best of luck. It's always either air, fuel, or spark! If one or more of the 3 are missing it'll never run(not right if it does), those basics always apply to an internal combustion engine of any age or size, whether carbureted or fuel injected. Thanks and Best of Luck

Need to know more... is it no spark? or is it no fire? -- first check spark with a spark checker or by pulling spark plug out and grounding the plug then cranking to see if it sparks... if it sparks check compression -- if you have spark and compression its most likely fuel and you need to do lower carburetor

12v power is good. Ground is good. Check fuse. If all is good stereo is bad. Check with direct battery 12v and direct battery ground.
