View Full Version : 1990 Tristar/Electrical Problem?

06-18-2011, 10:27 PM
I just bought a 1990 Tristar 190 w/ Indmar Ford 351 that has 470 hrs on it. Boat is in excellent condition. We took it out for the first time today and the boat ran strong and started right up time and time again for 3 to 4 hours but then stalled when idling and would not start back up. When trying to crank it it was not firing. After being towed, a couple of hours later after the engine had cooled down it fired right up. Does anyone have any thoughts on what may be the problem?

Sounds like Ignition coil over heating, check and see if there is a ignition ballast in between wiring harness and coil, probably just need to replace coil...
