" 1973 307Q hard to start. Will finally start after holding throttle half way open, revs at 3000 rpms then dies. Will not idle. I changed fuel filter but no change. This first started while out on water but got home on other engine. Boat is a 1973 Express Bridge with twin 307Q's. Any help or direction on where to start would be appreciated. "

" Carl,
What type of ignition system do you have?
Points or electronic? I'd start with checking inside the distributor.

Points Eddie. My first thought was that it could be ignition related. Thanks for the suggestion.
