    Welcome

    Does this engine have the upgrade or original ignition?

    My signature links will show you how to tell which you have, and how to test the stator and ignition coils. CDI is not really testable.

    Well, you can go through the diagnostics. You might get lucky and find it just needs an ignition coil or some other easy fix.

    My expectation is that you need to purchase and install the Ignition Update Kit. You will end up with a brand new stator and CDI, of a more reliable design. The only original ignition parts that get re-used are the ignition coils and spark plug wires.

    The quick route to a reliable repair is to order the Ignition System Update Kit and install it. It takes some effort to change the stator, but you only need to do this once. And if you pull the engine out to do the change, you can fully clean and inspect many things that are hard to see with the engine down in the hull.

    You can easily ohm test the ignition coils, and good used coils are available if you discover you need to replace. New coils are available too.
