    Default Nissan 8hp 2 stroke stopped while I drove and since that won't start anymore.

    I live in a mooring field. And while I was driving from my boat to the dinghy dock . Suddenly my engine stopped. First I thought that I got water in it. Cause the sea was rough. Someone towed me in. And I added some seafoam with no luck. I drained the carb and put 2 new spark plugs in it and used carb/ choke cleaner. Still no result. The plugs sparks holding it next to the coil. One better though then the other. Has anyone a clue what it could be.

    Could be almost anything, but it's usually a fuel issue. Try going with completely fresh gas/oil after draining the whole fuel system (including the primer hose), and see what happens.

    Before you go swapping electrical parts, I would test them. Better to diagnose than guess.

    Engine is running again. Replaced the cdi coil. Had to make a bypass cause old coil had 5 wires new one 4. One pull...and engine run again.
