outboard timing?

Hi there my old man was clearing out the garage on the week end and dropped my 25hp mariner engine. Not from a great height but enough to make a bang haha. Basically it wont start now it has got fuel as the plugs are wet when i bring them out after cranking and it is sparking. Do you think that it would be possible that the timing has been nocked out through the shock or is this not possible. Any help is apreciated. Thanks

Unlikely. Get it in to a mechanic.

Most unlikley, try draining the carb float chambers of any stale fuel and remove the plugs. turn the engine over by hand with the ignition off or kill cord out, and throttle wide open to purge the crank case.(fuel not connected )
Then re fit clean dry and correctly gapped plugs and try again with fresh fuel.
if it still wont go then take it to a mechanic. if it has fresh fuel and a spark it should go.
Do not turn the engine over with the plug leads off or plugs out and the ignition on, its really bad for the insulation in the coils.

i agree with NOS4r2 and doggiepaddle most unlikely ,if the hood was came off it could have hit something and cracked a coil or bent something .but most likely is its just been stood in the garage a while and it just needs as was said in the earlier posts , has it got a kill cord and its not plugged in correctly ,
