Fuel prime

Question about fuel here. In getting my 440's started for the first time in 12 years my engines have lost prime a few times.

I happened to remember that all just bundled all of my wires for the flybrige when it was taken down a year ago. I went up top and removed the waterproof ...

Ignition seems connected

In my journey it seems like I have more ignition issues. When I got the boat I could not find any voltage to either coil while cranking.

Re: Tranmission
