    Welcome

    Check battery voltage while cranking. Must stay well above 10.6 volts or you will not have spark. These engines require a strong battery.

    Hold Bilge button down while cranking, if battery voltage is strong.

    I have a battery charger on it now..display voltage is is 10.7 with the charger on while cranking. Also tried holding bilge button during crank. Still no spark..can the spark plugs being br8es and not bpr8es have anything to do with it

    Do not crank the engine with charger connected. Voltage surges are possible, not good.

    10.7 is barely adequate voltage while cranking. If the battery alone cannot do better than that when well charged, get a new battery.

    Deka ETX16LM is the battery I recommend. Factory sealed AGM type battery.

    The P means the spark plug has a Projected tip. This improves ignition, but would not prevent the engine from starting.

    Readings look good. You need to touch your meter leads together to find out the lead resistance and subtract that from the readings above. If they are within 10% they are fine.

    Smaller readings are ususally not so accurate. Thus the ignition coil readings are likley good because they are consistant.
