Thread: 60 hp no spark

  1. #1

    Default 60 hp no spark

    I have a 97 60 hp mariner. Took it out the other day and ran fine for awhile then wouldn't start up at all. Figured it was flooded but got towed in anyways. Took it out again a few days later and same thing happened. I'm not getting any spark at all to all 3 cylinders. Thinking it's the switch box. Thanks in advance

    It could be that and other things. You need to have someone check the motor out with a DVA meter.

    Here is a link to the CDI troubleshooting Guide

    The guide covers what to test and how...

    Good luck
