Re: Hard to Start

Thanks for the advice guys. I just put on a new electronic ignition kit so all new plugs, wires, distributor guts, brain, etc. After starting it runs really smooth. I always use MMO in the fuel and oil and fog the cylinders in the fall.
I tried to pull the flame arrestor but it's not been off in years and the screw heads are just getting stripped. It may be that the arrestor is dirty so I'll keep working on it.
Sounds like I'm down to pulling the carb and cleaning/rebuilding but will try to get by this season as we're pulling the boat to take home this year for new deck and bottom paint.
I guess I'll add it this to the list of stuff I need to do off season.
BTW-I have been the Moyer site many times (and so has my credit card!).
Thanks guys for all the good advice. Happy sailing.
