Keith,

Now that you have passed the test/quiz, I' m sure that Santa is more convinced to put under the tree that gps you wrote him about.

By the way, I 'm trying to convience Santa to bring me an upgrade (gps/map/fishfinder) for Christmas too.

29/30

Excellent quiz. Got 29/30 but I'll put the one wrong answer down to the coding on the engine starting sequence

Sasa is correct. The starting sequence for a modern engine such as an Optimax is slightly different. It would be something like:

Fit Kill cord.
Ensure throttle is in neutral. (although safety lock should prevent start in gear.) Despite the fact that my merc throttle control has a cold start lever it should NOT be used.
Prime engine - also not really neccessary but if you have say just changed fuel tanks maybe useful.
Turn key to first position - engine pump will turn over and prime system.
Start engine on key. Choke is taken care of by the ECU on the engine. No smoke, no need to rev the nuts of the thing, it just ticks over!
Check tell tale.

I miss the clouds of 2 stroke smoke we used to get when we started our old Johnson V6........not!

I've just taken a look at the site and tried the test. I got the first one right but every other question after that has an answer highlighted. Unfortunately this is always the right answer ! I think there must be another glitch in the system.

Hi, sorry you experienced a problem. There doesn't appear to be an issue with the site that I can find. Is it possible that someone else used your PC to undertake the quiz before you? If they did it would cause exactly the problem you highlight - subject to your PCs settings - sorry if this sounds like passing the buck - it's all I can think of!

ALL: Does anyone want to send through some questions for the advanced section?

Paul

I've just done some of the questions and it appears that which ever answer you take, e.g. "A" remains highlighted in the next question.

You probably need to reset all fields to non-highlighted/selected before presenting the next question.

As "A" is the correct answer to the first few questions this would give the appearance of giving the correct answer

Regards

Mark

I see what you mean now. I'll work on sorting this over the next week - thanks (Nick - apologies to you too, note though that doesn't highlight right answer just appears to do so for first couple of questions)

Thanks again

Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for that....I saw your reply and started to worry that I might have been imagining it cos no-one else had done the quiz.
Just tried it again and it works fine.
