Evening all, I'm new here so be kind and bear with me
I'm new to the whole SIB / RIB scene but am so far absolutely loving it! I've always tinkered with cars and motorbike but boat engines are a novalty and I'm stuck....
I acquired a 2006 mariner 10 Hp, short shaft relatively cheap. I bought it as a project, since it didn't run - I was told it had no spark and needed a new CDI unit. Having got it home it appears to have a spark on both plugs so I thought I'd strip down and clean the carb (I thought perhaps a fueling issue).
Unfortunately with freshly cleaned carbs and what appears to be a reasonable spark, it still doesn't run; not so much as a splutter!
My question for the forum is, any ideas? What can I check next and how can I trouble shoot and eliminate various aspects of the carb or CDI.
Many thanks. Richard
