    Default " Hello.. I just aquired a 75

    " Hello.. I just aquired a 75 Johnson 70 hp, I think the previous owner had no clue.. anyways.. the wire lenths on the coils fit better if coil one is on cyl 2, coil 2 on cyl 1, and coil 3 on 3.. it was 1-1, 2-2, 3-3 when I fist opened the cover.. but the wires we stretched and there natural worn in curves fit better my way.. Is this correct? or??.. I have not tried to start it yet... "
