Thank you for the offer. Thought yours was an anchor by now anyway!

If your anchor ends up fast on the seabed, it could prove a handy spare!

Thanks A1an - I'll try placing the sensor next to a jug of boiling water. There's no continuity in the earth and positive lead just now - which I assume means it's open.

The M90 has a water pressure sensor, where as the M60 has just overheat and low oil sensor. I'll look into it and see if the CDI has similar wiring. Thanks C-NUMB. If you need a link to the same service manual I'm using just holler!

Hate to admit defeat, but the Twatsoo will have to go to a marine engineer that loves the smell of 2-stroke more than me. I've done everything I can, short of threaten to replace it with a bleed'n 4-stroke, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. I'll keep you posted as to the outcome. My money is on the pulsar coil.

On the plus side my auxilliary is running sweet as a nut. New impeller, gear oil, and carb strip down. That engine is as good as the day it rolled off the Barrus production line.

Quick update.

Negotiated rush hour Aberdeen traffic and took the rib to Graham at Mackay Marine near the harbour. He sorted it within 3 hours. Timing was out and carbs needed adjusted. Happy to have this finally resolved, and engine is running sweet. Thanks for everyone's input.

You might have done this ready but start it in the dark and see if the HT leads are lighting up? Had this problem with a 50 Tohatsu in the past. Bad internet connection on holiday so haven't read all the replys

Your thread reminds me of the 'Lessons Learned' wrap-up meetings we're forced to endure at the end of one of our projects when us mere mortals at the coal face have an opportunity to discuss with the Armchair Admirals, who never get their feet wet or their hands dirty, what went well, or not so well...

The recurring lesson is, of course, always the same but is never learned: 'If you'd involved us earlier in the process we could have saved you bundles of time, heartache, stress and money'.

Good to know you got it sorted and hat's off to you for sharing your pain.
