    Default Clinton j9 tune up

    Motor has good compression serial number 82151. I am not getting spark when I test the plug on the block I out a new plug in just to see and I have no spark when I pull it over with the plug out of the engine, I am new to working on outboards but I am experienced in small engine repair. Any info on how I should go about getting this running would be great. Previous owner had it running 4 years ago and kept up on oil to keep it from seizing up. Any suggestions on steps to take to get it running would be appreciated!

    Hey George, My experience is that an engine that's set for a few years will develop some corrosion on the contact points. Pull the flywheel, clean the points, and regap. 50 to 1 this will solve your problem.
