    Default Volvo Penta 5.0GL Power improves when under electrical load

    I have a 2002 Regal with a 5.0 Volvo GL PEFS, I recently replaced, coil, plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor. Boat at times runs well, then all of a sudden it boggs down, when i put a load on the electrical system like hit the trim tabs, lights etc.... the engine smooths out.

    Ayuh,.... Sounds like corroded grounds,....

    Start at the battery, 'n Clean All the cable connections to shiny clean metal,....
    Both cables, 'n Both ends of the cables,....
    Any Grease is Better,... Than No grease at All....
