I have read the postings of others and tried to walk through the advice given but nothing has worked so far. So that said I will give a break down of the problems I am having and what I have done. First off I did buy a manual and have went through all the trouble shooting section. I have no spark what so ever and now my key switch isn't working. I have replaced and jumped the solenoid to check for spark. I have cleaned and re gaped the points(points are new) I have replaced the CDI amplifier, I have replaced the wiring harness to the power head, I have cleaned the cap and checked the reverse coil, check all the grounds, tested with my dmm from point to point on the wires them self for a break in the wiring. I have jumped the key switch using the three wires for the start circuit.
This motor was a problem for the guy I got it from too, he'd lose spark once every couple years but it had always been do to dirty plugs or old wiring, when I got it he'd hooked up one wire backwards and fried the points. I replaced them and it ran then out on the water it died and I have not had any luck figuring it out this time.
Any body have any suggestions on this old troublesome motor???
The stator has had issues with the coating pealing but I have used silicone to fix it which was working before. I do have great compression still my timing key is good(I did check) Its has the push bottom shifter which is working fine still(I first check for something in the system grounding out)
