I'm looking for user tchiffriller, or anyone who has a solution...in April of 2010, tchiffriller posted the following thread:
I was motoring into port when i stupidly cut the channel and immediately threw it into reverse without even slowing up the throttle. It revved up high in neutral and I panicked and thru it into reverse where it immediately cut off. Since then the engine will crank but there is NO SPARK i have since then replaced the coil which i believed to be faulty and still no spark. Do you think the over rev or boat hitting the sandy chesapeake with a thud do something to the ignition system??
A week ago, the same situation happened with me. Prior to the event, the engine had been working fine. I've read the responses to the original thread that others left, but I am wondering if the user ever got the problem resolved. If so, how? The coil is still good, a new distributor cap, rotor, condenser, and points have been installed, but still no spark. The rotor does turn. I was informed by the person who installed all of the parts that the points have not yet been properly gapped. He did not have a feeler gage to properly gap the points which should be gapped at 0.18-0.20 according to the specs. Could this be why there is no spark...? Assuming that the parts are installed correctly, and once the points are properly gapped, if there is still no spark, what could be the culprit. I appreciate your input and suggestions. Thank you in advance.
