I have a 1987 bayliner cieara,5.0 OMC cobra. I changed the distributor, from points to an electronic. I bought it on line, it has the base timing, to total timing etc . This boat idles and runs great at 3000 to 4000 rpm s, but it runs only a about 50 yards at cruzzing speed. It will start right back up and run another 50 yards and die again. If i start it and go full out it is fine again. Can any one figure this one out?
