    785 won't turn over

    Trying to get 785 started so I can sell it(want to sell it as don't have a lot of time to work on it) and it won't turn over. I put new battery in and nothing the display won't even light up. I started it last year but has not been on water in a couple years. The elec box has some corrored connections as it has been sitting for a few years. I found the service manual on here so I will start looking through it. Any suggestion on where to start. Or someone can come get it cheap.

    Where are you located?

    Corrosion inside the electrical box is not good. Clean it up, or replace the terminal board.

    Remove and clean both ends of both battery cables. Also clean the engine grounding location, and the bolt.

    MN. I planned on cleaning when I get a chance but like I said not a lot of time to work on that is why I am selling it. It is to nice to sit in the shed. Is this the right place to post this or should it go under another topic? I am new to this forum.

    there is a tiny round fuse in the electrical box that when it pops will kill the display. If you just hooked up the battery, there might have been a surge. Popped mine that way a couple of times.

    Check them with voltmeter and the fuses were good. Going to jump the solenoid tonight and clean some connections.
