Thanks Festinghouse...
Handy info. I'll make sure the primer is well pumped and try the 5 seconds idea. As for the rectifier, where is it? I will check the grey wire when I find it too. I'm using a motor bike size battery for starting... Can the small capacity of the battery damage the charging circuit?
Thanks again

dont know about size of battery, though im sure someone here will know. rectifier may look like this 135632 NEW MERCURY MARINE OUTBOARD RECTIFIER 62351A1 62351A2 816770 816770T | eBay - ive never had anything to do with these. or it may look like this USED Voltage Regulator / Rectifier Mercury ~ Mariner Outboard 883072T | eBay 2 yellow wires go to stator, red goes to starter solenoid for charging, grey is for tacho.

First one is simply a rectifier. I clocked 19V off mine at 1500 rpm and promptly changed it for a Honda rectifier /regulator unit.
