Boat will start fine in the dock. Boat will run fine but will randomly at time loose power. Will throttle it down, and ease it back up and most of the time it will run ok.
2nd issue is that it starts fine in the dock no problem cold. Run for a while and turn off to anchor. When we go to restart, it will crank but not fire. Will usually take 15 to 20 tries, all while using the throttle to try and catch the engine to start.
Have replaced both fuel pumps last year, , just did a complete Distributor, Cap, Plugs, Wires and Rotor and ignition coil. Also new starting battery.
Whats next Carburator??
