No spark

Thank you for the info. Is there any case where it would allow one power pack to deliver spark to cylinders 1 and 2 and the other power pack to not give spark to cylinders 3 and 4? Like one power pack does not receive power but the other does? Is it a V4? I dont know much about those motors but I t...

No spark

I put in a new power pack on my 1987 88hp Johnson because I was having some misfires at mid to high rpms. Now i don't have spark on cylinders 3 and 4. I was pretty sure the original power pack was the problem because there was rip in the coil fitting boot and I could see the terminal. If one power p...

So I tried again with no luck. After removing the set screw on the twist grip, it still feels like it is very securely attached to the tiller arm somehow and not by just wires.

1986 25hp Mercury XD

Hi guys, I was hoping someone could help me out with trying to get the twist grip off to replace the stop switch. I pried the rubber handle off and removed the set screw but I don't want to tug too hard on anything before knowing what needs to be done. The twist grip has to come off somehow.

I bought it used with a 50amp breaker on the battery but it seems to break an awful lot when I start when it is not warm yet and it takes a few seconds to start. I cannot find anything on a size breaker for this an...
