    Welcome to the Hulk

    Carburetor or fuel injected engine?

    Two or three cylinder?

    The electrical box should have a gasket/seal that keeps it dry inside even if the hull takes on water.

    The number one reason for no spark is a weak battery. Even if it cranks the engine, the voltage while cranking may be too low. Measure the battery voltage with a volt meter, while cranking the engine. Voltage must stay above 10.6 volts or you will not have spark.

    Virtually all the info you need is available around here

    It is worth your while to spend some time perusing my signature links, and the Polaris Tech and FAQ forums.

    How strong is the spark? Bright blue/white, or yellowish?

    How far will the spark jump to the engine block?
