    How many hours on it?

    Firstly, you need to determine whether it's an electrical problem or a fuel problem.

    Start it up.
    When it starts to stumble, spray some Starting Fluid into the air intake.
    If it helps it run then you have a fuel issue.
    If it dies then it's electrical.

    are you seeing water coming out of the pissers?
    does the motor look like it's turning "gold" colored??

    water is comming out of pisser.it has plenty hours was a rental in pensacola. will have to get some marine starting fluid and try that when it stumbles and look at the engine to see if it changes color.a compression check is over my head have not the tools or knowledge to do that.is there something like a coil that could be causing this?
