1995 Suzuki 2 stroke 140 horsepower

I just picked up a boat (glass ctr. console) with this motor on it, having only owned it for a day I'm not real familiar with the Suzuki brand. Motor has good compression and turns over easily but it seems we are not getting any fire... Or fuel possibly... On a less rainy day I may be more inclined to sort it out but for the moment I would greatly appreciate imput from our more educated ribbers out there regarding this fine brand... Any takers? Things to look out for? Throw the whole lot in the dumpster??

Pretty standard T/S routine, Pat:

Pull plug wires, check for spark.

Reassemble, crank for a bit, check plugs for unburned fuel/oil. Alternatively, if it's not firing, you will probably be able to smell the gas in the exhaust. If you don't have fuel going in you also don't have oiling so be a bit careful there.

I suspect you'll probably be lacking #2, but that's just a wild-a$$ed guess...

My first check would be the Neutral switch under the hood.

It only cuts the ignition not the starter circuit, so the engine will still spin over.

Replace the fuel and put a 10 micron fuel filter/water separater on the transom. Then take it to a good mechanic.
