I went to go out for the seasons maiden voyage and the engine started cutting out and losing a cylinder.It would cut out and restart right away. All cyl. have good compression (130lbs) it seems like an electrical problem. The motor is a 1985.

" Chad,

Check for spark. The spark should jump a gap of about 7/16 inch. It is common on these engines to see some signs of spark in the spark plug gap, and to have weak spark, so it is important to make sure the spark will jump a substantial gap.
