Thanks for all advice given guys.. youve all been brilliant...

But Ive just been told the engine is b*lloxed and not worh the cost to repair (obsolete parts etc.).. Im gutted...

Now going to have to find another one... that works!...

Ach well, some lessons learned here I guess...

Thanks again...

Ferryden,

Really? Did they explain what was wrong? I can imagine a main dealer saying "not worth the effort" but that doesn't mean that a competent mechanic can't fix it. I can also believe that coils or other electrickery might no longer be available - but there are a number of outboard graveyards around where you might be able to get a second hand part and get it running again...
