    Default help me before the wife kills me

    I bought a couple of motors they other day in hopes to have one up and running one is a 15hp eska model number 14211D it has been setting for about a year and the guy said it needed a coil I got it home hooked up the gas pulled about three times and she fired up now it didn't run the best I'm thinking at the time old gas and maybe the carb needed cleaned got new gas and cleaned the carb and ran it a little more it ran better at a higher throttle went and got new plugs (they even was able to see what plugs came in it and crossed to a plug they had) now it want start it is barely firing when tested by my lucky son to hold the screwdriver in the plug wire (I had to do it for my dad it's his turn to do it for me) I got a coil that it was supposed to cross to 30560a not sure if that is right but wasn't hitting a lick out of that plug took the stator off cleaned it and put back on and it almost started after that back to barely hitting if anyone had any ideas let me know the wife is pissed lol

    its more than likely the rear stator module,, 99% chance the C1 capacitor has failed and the SCR could be cooked,, repairable but you need skills, lot O skills. best to replace with a new CDI unit. for testing the coils/PT's you need to PM me

    Yep that's why I'm puzzled thought the fuel should stay in the line due to check valve maybe the bulb is bad even though it new gonna take it off tomorrow and see if the check valve is working ran out of daylight and the wife was giving me that you don't sleep with the boat motor look

    I may sound dumb but the only dumb question is one that isn't ask I know nothing about small engines or outboard engines and decently carbs by three ports what do I need to look for

    Ok here we go again got a carb kit installed the flapper valve fuel pump float and gaskets the motor runs great but only runs till the bowl runs out of fuel checked and reset the floats and it's getting fuel but it's almost like the fuel pump isn't filling the bowl back up when it's running any suggestions

    Sometimes it's the smallest things we miss I have talked to i bet 25 people in forums alone and numerous mechanics at work and never one time did we discuss the mounting gasket bout a carb kit and the only gasket that wasn't in it was the mounting gasket not one time did I take it off the mounting bolts it was upside down the whole time fired up first pull and runs like a top just got to adjust the carbs tomorrow and take her to the lake thanks for all the advice I am sure it will help in the long run
