    Exclamation Getting no spark and have tried everything 1983 OMC 2.5l

    We have a 1983 Starcraft boat with a 2.5l engine and we can't get it to start.
    We are getting no spark.
    We have replaced the condenser, checked the point gap, checked and ohm'd the coil receiving 2.8 ohm's of resistance across the poles. Tested voltage at battery side of coil with points open and receive 11.5 volts on positive side with reference to ground. The negative side has 11.45 volts with reference to ground.
    With points closed, positive side is 4.8 volts with reference to ground. Negative side is .3 volts with reference to ground.
    Engine Model #252STHRCNG
