    96 polaris 780 slt ( no spark help)

    I have a 96 780 slt i bought last summer
    had a leaking fuel tank so the previous owner
    washed out the gas from inside the hull
    and i replaced the tank and battery
    good compression and plenty of fuel but no spark!!
    The guy said it was running before he washed out the hull
    Im an experienced mechanic but not familiar
    with polaris or its component locations
    any suggestions?

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    1. is the lanyard installed?

    2. Make sure the battery is fully charged.

    3. make sure the cable connections are tight at the battery and the engine plate for the ground.

    4. on top of the elec box is a circuit breaker, make sure it's not "popped" up

    5. Inside the black elec box is all the elec connections. Make sur there's no water inside of the box
