I forgot to write on my last note, you have to find out whether your problem is electric or fuel then go from there. Good luck. I have given you a good start for both fuel and elec

Hi all.
Today was boat service day. The damn thing started no problem at the beginning of the session. I changed the plugs, cleaned the carbs changed the filters, cleaned the tanks out. And made minor adjustments to the idle air mixture. And now she starts just the same as before all that. I checked the butterflies were all the same and closed at idle no adjustment needed. As it turns out the engine did sneeze when reved and the adjustment seems to have stopped this so thanks to Uncle Al for the advice. I guess I'll have to take it out, give it a try and see if I've if the problem is solved.
