    The model year should not be a mystery, as it is the last two digits of the HIN number plate on the rear deck.

    Are you sure you hooked the battery polarity up correctly? Negative battery post to the heavy black cable, which runs to the engine ground bolt.

    Did you buy this as a running watercraft, or with known problems?

    Start by removing and cleaning every engine ground. You want clean metal to metal contact. Clean the bolt, the hole, the wire ends. Check each black wire for damage or breaks.

    The main ground point is on the engine lower left rear. There is another ground at the forward ignition coil. See my signature links for how to improve the Ficht ignition coil grounding.

    These engines require a specific spark plug, no substitutes. NGK PZFR6H only.

    Make sure the battery is strong and healthy, a weak battery will complicate the diagnostics.
