    A back fire usually indicates a low battery, make sure you have at least 10.6 volts (measured at the battery) when cranking the engine.

    Take your emm out and remove the cover on it .See if there is any corrosion or burnt areas under the cover .We will then go from there .These emms are dropping like flies at the moment .Are they at the end of their life when run in Salt water after 5/6 yrs? hmm
