Re: Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start
Does the pull cord come out, about a foot or so when you pull it? If not, there is an interlock that prevents that if not in neutral. We have a Tohatsu 6HP 4 stroke and the shift lever has to be in EXACTELY the right spot to allow the cord to be pulled through.
If the engine is "pulling through", with the pistons cycling properly, suggest you re-visit some of the prior posts.
