Hey guys I picked up a 94 sp yesterday and the previous owner said it lost spark when out on the water. He installed a different mpem and it had spark for a few seconds then no more spark. I'm new to the ignition system trouble shooting, so I need so step by step advice.

I read the service manual and I don't have a ignition tester (testing stator) as what they use in the manual. How do I test the stator with a multimeter? My stator doesn't have a plug.

The testing of the mpem is shown in the manual with a multimeter.

How do I test the coil with a multimeter?

I want to pin point the issue before I just replace a bunch of parts and spend lots of money.

Let me know how you trouble shoot a ignition system.
